So my day started with a early flight from Dublin at 7 in the mornimg. Fortunately its a very short flight (only 45 minutes). I got to the LG arena at around 12 am. There was around 5 people waiting there all ready. This is where the horror started thought. The weather was very very very cold and we had to wait for another 6 hours. We were all shaking but they let us in 1 hour early. Before that there was a nice LP crew guy who came out and gave us LP guitar picks! (very awesome :-) )
When we entered the arena first thing i noticed was the big screens behind the stage. Before they gig they showed a Music for Relief video around 3 or 4 times. The whole crowd started screaming when Chester & Mike came up in the video!
The show started with The Requiem, personally i think this is the best Linkin Park live intro ever. The "uuuuuuuuuu" singing at the start made my hair stand, and i felt like my biggest dream is coming true for the third time, a great way to start a show for sure, then Wretches and Kings started, the band did a great job in this song. This song was a good one to warm the crowd up by making everyone sing "Hey, Hey Hey,,,,".
Personally for me the biggest highlights of the show was "When They Come for Me". It's the most awesome, coolest and crazy thing to see Chester and Brad play the drums, and then Brad speaking on the megaphone (+ its probably one of my favorite songs of a ATS). The band looked like they were enjoying the show (Mike had a smile on his face all the time).
Overall the set list is one of the strongest from all the 3 shows i attended. A bunch of great songs from the older the albums and of course the new album as well!
Another cool thing that happened was when the fan was pulled up on the stage to play mike's guitar part of Crawling! Rare thing to see for sure. The show closed with Bleed it Out. It wasn't the normal Bleed It Out though. A very old Linkin Park (Well actually Xero song) called Reading my Eyes was played over bleed it out and then A Place for my Head, so pretty much 3 songs in 1! Deffinately Badass.
Shows like this is a reason why LP won the award for the Best Live Act.

Totally agree with ur review. I was at this show and it was my 1st tym seein LP Live and i was blown away by their performance & the energy that this show produced. I been down wiv LP since day1 & the only minor negative was that Papercut wasn't performed which is my all tym fav song but Wretches & Kings is just as good!  Gr8 way 2 start the show, LINKIN PARK RULEZ!!!!!  ;)

 

P.S LINKIN PARK= Gr8est band of all tym!!

I agree that Requiem is the best intro!! The "uuuu" is building up the excitement inside before they enter the stage. Incredible.
