I was at the LPU Summit in Chicago

Hey guys and gals who attended the Chicago LPU Summit! This group was created as a way to keep in contact about the experience that we all had. I think it would be cool if we all could keep in touch and share our experiences, photos and videos!

@redtoblack really? A lot of people were falling, it was pretty funny :P

So am I, we need another US Tour... Maybe a US Projekt Revolution? :)

Yeah, skating was awesome! I can sit back and say the first time I took my son ice skating was at a Linkin Park Underground event. Too bad my toe was in so much pain... Anyways.

 

Yes, Fort Minor still kicks ass.

 

I'm okay without another tour for now because the band is currently getting their stuff together for the next album. Chester said it will polarize people while Mike has no idea what Chester was talking about. Rick Rubin is on board again. Things are churning faster for a new album. :)

 

The set list for the summit in Hamburg was "The Messenger" and "Rolling In The Deep" By Adele. It sucks we didn't have an acoustic set, but it also sucks that the our Summit took so long to fill up...

 

Anyways, I'm still excited about the future of the band. Did everybody do their survey?

The Chicago Summit video was released when the new LPUX features came out in May. It's an LPU*TV exclusive: http://lpu.linkinpark.com/site/lputv/

Hey guys, I don't really want this group to sound like we are really being negative and ungrateful... We were the only summit that got to sit in on a sound check. That, to me, was something incredibly intimate that the band let us in on. You guys do realize we were pretty much watching a band practice, yeah? That to me is was worth more than a two song acoustic set. We got to hear the band play for nearly an entire hour! The fact is, we got to watch the band perform more than any of the other summits...

 

If my previous post sounded like I was being ungrateful with the acoustic set, let me assure you, that is not the case what-so-ever. I wanted to point out that it seemed like our summit took very long to fill up, if it even 'sold out' at all. I heard that the one in Hamburg 'sold out' within days. I don't know if Adam can confirm or deny that or if it even matters. Anyways, I think us rabid fans in general could have 'hopped on the double and put the pedal to the floor' a lot faster than we did to fill up the summit.

 

In closure, I think all in all we should be happy for our summit experiences and the fact that they had a summit here at all. They didn't have to have one. The fact that they did deserves my unyielding gratitude.

 

If you guys can read this, thank you Linkin Park. My only regret from the summit was not shaking your hands during the meet and greet. Even though this wasn't my first meet and greet, I was so star-struck that I couldn't think of anything. I know that will not be my last meet and greet experience and I will be sure to not look at you guys like a museum exhibit next time. :) Keep up the good work.
