Linkin Park Lands in Johannesburg

Linkin Park shocked detractors with an impressive performance in Johannesburg that brilliantly blended hip hop and rock to generate something new for the long time band. With numerous songs including a Jay-Z collaboration on Collision Course, the concert was impressive enough to leave even die-hard haters wanting more.

When news of the band’s South African tour was released, I frivolously posted on Twitter and Facebook ‘Hmmm, Linkin Park, eh? Six years too late methinks…’

I was under the very deluded suspicion that they may be too stale, irrelevant and quite boring after a few ‘meh’ albums, and what seemed like an even more ‘meh’ latest one.

Experiencing Linkin Park’s Living Things tour live at Johannesburg’s Soccer City on Saturday night was a perception-changing concert, which will forever leave me in awe.
