Put your pedal to the metal and see progressive band Linkin Park at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, August 14, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!
Nu metal. Rap metal. Mix one with the other, and you’ve got Linkin Park’s first album “Hybrid Theory.” All that album did was to be certified Diamond in 2005!
Linkin Park started out in 1996 and achieved overnight success. MTV II named the band the sixth greatest band of the music video era. A VH1 poll named Linkin Park the greatest artists of the 2000s. “Hybrid Theory” won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song “Crawling.” In 2014, Linkin Park toured with Iron Maiden, Metallica and Rage against the Machine. The band performed for the charity event to benefit the people of Haiti.
Inspired by the rock area of Greece known as Meteora, Linkin Park released their next album “Meteora.” The album mixes metal with exotic instruments, including a Japanese bamboo flute. The album sold 800,000 copies in the first week. The band’s newest album, “One More Light,” is the basis for the new tour.
