Linkin Park doesn’t visit us very often. It was the third concert they played in Poland. I have to say, this one was the most awesome in my life. Setlist was a real beast and all of the guys did a great job. However, let’s start from beginning.
Whole Wrocław was full of people wearing LP’s t-shirts. Lots of foreigners and travelers from all over Poland. I felt like being surrounded by people like me, which made me almost cry from happiness. Before the entrance most of us signed a special flag, which was given to Chester during M&G.
This time Fall Out Boy played as a support and unfortunately all that were chosen for the M&G had to miss their performance. We only saw “Phoenix”, which in my opinion was really cool. A group of people who were excited to meet Linkin Park were taken under the ground. Everyone was waiting for LP to come, and then they appeared from the least expected entry. We took a group photo and stood in a queue . Everyone got their item signed and we went back to the stadium. The biggest impact for me was meeting Rob. I talked to him for a sec, and I have to say he is a really great man. We talked about drumming (as I’m a drummer too) and he was really pleased to hear that he is an inspiration for someone.
The concert began at about 9.30 PM, with the Requiem intro turning into The Catalyst and ended with Bleed It Out. They played 27 songs, but lots of them were mixed together. Mostly it was done in an awesome way. Everything fit to the whole performance. Joe made a breathtaking solo, including some special effects, Mike did the same with his DJ’s pads… The most exciting solo for me was Rob again. The things he did in the last song were just like a blessing for people’s ears.
We were tired and thirsty, spent the whole night at the train station, where people were sleeping literally everywhere, our bodies were hurting everywhere, but it was the best day ever and our group is hoping to repeat it as soon as possible.
