Meet the Wild Card Support Acts on Linkin Park's Tour Opener Tonight
Linkin Park surprised its fans with the release of its fifth studio album, A Thousand Suns, last year. Its introductory single, "The Catalyst," was just a hint of the band's radical shift in direction. Chester Bennington's (New Times' interview with him is here) trademark nasal croon and existential lyrics stayed intact, but gone were much of the band's previous hip-hop-lite posturing. In its place was a new fascination with more purely electronic sounds, borrowing heavily from festival-size trance synth washes and stuttering background beats.
Linkin Park, with Pendulum and Does It Offend You, Yeah? 8 p.m. Thursday, January 20, at BankAtlantic Center, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise. Tickets cost $42.50 to $72.50. Call 800-745-3000, or click here.
