LP - Melbourne, 12th December 2010

Tonight marked my third visit to Rod Laver to see LP perform, and I left just as blown away as I ever have been.

From the very beginning they brought an energy to the stage that few bands can compete with, and managed to keep it all going until the very end of their set. The performance was top notch and even though the tonight's gig was far from sold out, LP did not compromise on their show or their efforts.

The set list was chosen perfectly, mixing together the singles (and future singles) of A Thousand Suns in with the classic hits we've grown to love. The first verse of little known gem 'Reading My Eyes' made its way into Bleed It Out, while monsters like One Step Closer and Faint never fail to win the crowd over. I'm amazed by how well their new tracks translate live, and am convinced that current single Waiting for the End is their best song to date.

I know I'm preaching to the converted here, and I know we're all here because we love them, but if you haven't seen them play live, then you don't know LP. And the best part of it all? I get to go back again and see them tear the roof off a sold-out Rod Laver Arena tonight!

Great pics buddy. Must've had an awesome time - they sure give a great concert. Sydney was just as incredible both nights.

@ Bec - My friend did something similar at Taste of Chaos a few years back - that is the worst!

I went to the Monday show at Rod Laver but was so shattered when my knee dislocated in the mosh pit at the start of the third song. Had to get taken by ambulance to the Alfred hospital so i missed the entire concert. So so shattered that i missed seeing my favourite band play live, especially when i bought pre-sale tix which cost way more :(

I can't believe my blog was featured on linkinpark.com - thanks a lot guys!


@ rebecca: yeh, Monday was even better than Sunday (check out my review for monday as well)!

@Lode: I didn't realize anyone else knew it was Reading My Eyes! Such a rare track, we were very lucky to hear it.

@N*D: Performance was just as good as 2007, but with the material on the new album it made it so much better!


Can anyone else find a video of one step closer on monday night where you can see the mosh? I want to see the security guard grab me in an arm lock properly (on the video I posted the guy with the camera is moving all over the place).
