The band inducing members Mike Shinoda (guitar and vocals), Brad Delson (guitar), David Farrell (bass), Rob Bourdon (drums) and Joe Hahn (keyboards) are headlining the Download Festival this year in United Kingdom. The band said that they were honoured to play in such a concert.
“Being American we never had many good rock festivals to go to as kids. Donington is a place we all dreamed of playing when we were growing up. Now we are headlining, it's awesome. We tend to play big outdoor gigs so it won't be too different. On this tour we decided to bring all the imagery and visuals of our album 'A Thousand Suns' on the road with us. There's a strong narrative," Chester told Daily Star newspaper.
Rap metal band, Linkin Park claims that they are much weirder than Lady Gaga who is otherwise known for her peculiar sense of fashion. Frontman Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, claims that the band's back stage rituals will even bring her to shame. He jokingly admitted that he usually bathes in goat's milk for three hours in a white room before appearing on stage.
