After sleepless nights it was finally May/24 – KFMADay!
After 10 years, Linkin Park came back to Tucson, Az.
It was a good day with good weather. My family and I arrived at 4:30 pm at the venue.
At 6:15 my son and I waited in line for the M & G! My son was very excited! His first show and M & G of Linkin Park! For me it was the second but I was still very nervous.
After waiting like 30 min the boys came! My heart and my hands were shaking, I was so nervous!
Joe was the first to come and say hello, and then Mike. My son said, “Oh God, it’s Mike, look at his hair! I love It.”
Brad came next, then Phoenix, Chester and Rob! It’s super exciting to see them in front of you!
When phoenix came to us he signed my book, i told him Irene said hi to you and he said say hi too! Phoenix always reminds me of Irene. Chester came and looked at my son and said “Whats up buddy!” I asked him for a pic with my son, he said: sure, and then he put his hand on my son’s head.
Very exciting for me! He’s a very cute and nice guy! When Mike came, I asked, if I can take a pic of him with my son, and he said “YES!”. He smiled all the time and looked awesome with this jacket!
OK, the m&g ended, the eyes of my son and mine were in tears, hands sweating! But I was very happy my son’s dream came true! All the guys were great and super nice! I hope I see them again at the Carnivores Tour. I love my son so much! ♥ It was very great to be there with him!
At 8:30 LP went on stage and I wasn’t able to get close to it, there were too many people and I needed to take care of my son, but finally after 3 years, I saw my favorite band live again!
They opened with The Catalyst/Requiem (Mashup Intro) and followed with Guilty all the same. Wow, it sounded very good! I am glad to be one of the first people who have heard it live and Mike, in my opinion, sounds much better then Rakim.
During Given Up, the people clapped and my son sang along loud! It is one of our favorites songs. The next songs were Points of Authority, One Step Closer, Blackout, Papercut, With you and Runaway! Then they played Wasteland, the new song from The Hunting Party. Brad and Rob sounded great! Castle of Glass was next, my son’s favorite song! He was screaming and singing. Leave Out All the Rest, Shadow of the Day and Iridescent were played next. Oh God, Chester’s voice made me cry, it was so beautiful.
Joe was amazing, during Robot Boy and his solo! The next songs were Burn it down, Waiting for the end, Wretches and Kings/Remember The Name/Skin to Bone!
My son was very excited, when he heard “Remember the Name”! He loves Fort Minor!
3 more songs and Until It’s Gone was next! Wow, this song is amazing! I love Chester’s voice!
The next five songs were A Light That Never Comes, Lost in the Echo, Crawling, New Divide, What I’ve Done and the show ended with Bleed It Out which had Rob doing a drum solo.
It was a great night with my son! The setlist was really good with 27 songs and three new songs. It was amazing! Thank you Linkin Park for being part of my life and my family!
See you in September at the Carnivores Tour!
