Pictures of Linkin Park

On Linkin Park's website are listed their top five shows: New York City, Osaka (Japan), Berlin (Germany), Paris (France), and Tel Aviv (Israel).  I doubt Salt Lake City will be added to that list any time soon since the ESA was not full, but Linkin Park delivered a great show on their "A Thousand Suns: World Tour 2011."  We all loved Linkin Park's music, lights, and show delivery.  A sweet night.

The Music
Cutting edge nu and alternative metal, rap rock, with a smattering of alternative rock, electronica, and hip-hop

The Prodigy
The monologue for The Prodigy consisted of a litany of "f-bombs" repeated at least ten times in between each song they played.  Shock me if you must but after awhile, the same word over and over and over and over and over and over and again is repetitiously, redundant, boring, excessive, superfluous, surplus, supernumerary, and supererogatory.  The Prodigy played fierce metal, which would have been much more delectable had we been on the floor dancing and jumping.  But alas, most of us, including me, were on Row 26.  Two of the rest of us were on the floor and I hope to procure pictures soon of the upheaval down there.  The metal vibe permeated to our chairs.  In any event, the lights show was more spectacular than Disney at night, as you can see by the pictures below.
