Interesting info on Linkin Park. The last time I saw them was a pretty long time ago, but they rocked it. Maybe all the years of non-stop touring have finally gotten to them. Will be interesting to see how they've changed. Must've been pretty bad for you to leave though.Prepare to be bored out of your mind... by Linkin Park. Admittedly, I'm not the biggest LP fan, but they were terribly dull, uninspiring and lacked any sense of energy, urgency, or drive. Brad Delson looked like he'd rather be trimming his toe nails, walking aimlessly offstage and strumming his guitar with zero effort. The 45 minute intermission prior to - essentially a 45 minute Honda commercial with a Linkin Park soundtrack in between Incubus and LP, was terribly annoying. They played 8 LP songs during this time. We left after 5 live LP tunes; first time I've ever bailed on a concert.
However, that TOTALLY contrasts to what Incubus had done previously. As the "co-headliner" (i.e. - second opener) they came out and played an inspiring set full of musicality and performance. Their set spanned all of their albums, save Fungus, and was organic and energetic. There was no pretense or ********. They came out and laid it down with authority. I was already a big fan, this just confirmed it yet again. Brandon Boyd was impressive and Einziger tapped and tweaked like a madman. They really have their thing down, and it's super impressive to see. It's no surprise Linkin Park was less than stellar... I'd hate to have to follow Incubus every night too.
Get there early, we damn near missed Incubus, you won't be disappointed.
Yeah, I've seen Incubus several times and they brought the house down every single time. Glad to hear they're still bringin' it! Pretty stoked for the show.
