Linkin Park, California’s sensational alternative rock and metal artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Mattress Firm Amphitheatre!
Linkin Park was formed in Agoura Hills (California) in 1996 by high school friends Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon, and Brad Delson. They recruited Dave Farrell and Mark Wakefield to complete the line up and named themselves after Santa Monica's Lincoln Park. The band’s been through a few line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Chester Bennington (lead vocals), Mike (co-lead vocals, rhythm guitar, synthesizer, keyboard, and piano), Brad (lead guitar, and backing vocals), Dave (bass and backing vocals), Rob (drums and percussion), and Joe Hahn (turntables, samples, programming, and backing vocals). Their musical style is best described as a blend of alternative rock, alternative metal (a genre that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres not normally associated with metal), nu metal (a form of alternative metal that combines elements of heavy metal music with elements of other music genres such as hip hop, alternative rock, funk, and grunge), rap rock, and electronic rock. They’ve had a stellar career with 7 studio albums and they’ve sold over 70 million records worldwide. They’ve received many accolades including 2 Grammy Awards.
