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.
