Linkin Park - Kino Sports Complex - 5/24/2014

Linkin Park headlined the 2014 edition of Tucson rock station KFMA's annual radio show on Saturday at Electric Park in Tucson, where the band debuted new material from its forthcoming The Hunting Party record, due out next month, and played a lengthy number of mash-ups and medleys of their back catalog.

The band hit the stage right around 8:30 to a huge crowd, waiting to see the band for the first time in Tucson in 11 years. As the lights dimmed, vocalist Mike Shinoda appeared from the shadows as he cued the show's intro and first mash-up with "The Requim/The Catalyst," before lead singer Chester Bennington showcased the bands latest single "Guilty All the Same."
