So, how are we going to rally them into coming here too?
Despite claiming that I would never make a twitter account, I made one yesterday just to keep posting to the guys pages about coming here (one post a day by the way, I'm not spamming them [but then, maybe that would work better...?]).
I will be so very deeply disappointed if they skip us on this tour.
I just picked up the album at the store today and saw a sticker on the front cover that they are touring Australia, hence the reason I'm scouring the internet for NZ tour dates. Let's hope they do come through with the NZ date, they are one of the few bands I would actually pay to see. The last concert here was intense!
I had a look on the Vector Arena's website earlier in the month and it looks like its booked out with other shows before and after Linkin Park's tour dates in Australia. I haven't had a chance to look at other venues in Auckland, and through out New Zealand, where they might also perform, but maybe that's one reason why we've not been included in this leg of their tour? Otherwise that makes two of us scouring the internet for clues! haha
I agree, Linkin Park's last shows here were intense! The only other concert I've been to which came close (and I've been to quite a few) was Fort Minor's back in 2006.
Given the disappointing line up with BDO I really hope they pull through with the NZ show. Especially since the main reason I joined lpux was to get good tickets to it =S after reading that they were almost positive they were coming here.
at this stage, i don't see linkin park coming anytime soon.
the fact that on the CD/DVD editions of ATS it has a TOURING AUSTRALIA sticker is not promising. that alongside how close it is to their Australia dates that it would be unusual to announce one now and i also emailed their touring company for australia (who also bring bands touring Australia across the ditch) and they replied "Michael Coppel Presents looks after the tours in both Australia and New Zealand. This is definitely the email you would need to contact about tour dates etc. Unfortunately I have nothing to tell you as there have been no New Zealand shows announced. Kind regards, Emily."
The best we can do is cross our fingers, let Linkin Park AND the touring company know how much New Zealand loves Linkin Park and by the way, what is your guys stance on petitions? that is kinda another plan i had in mind.
anyway, i have set up a facebook page for news and updates here if you need it: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Linkin-Park-Street-Soldiers-NZ/153760...
So we all know that big bands tend to come to New Zealand only when visiting Australia because of the convenience of the hop across the ditch. LPU presales are already on for the Australian shows, so…Continue
