Linkin Park coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
We once interviewed Linkin Park guitarist Brad Delson. Nicest guy. Super smart, too. No matter what you think of the screamy nu-metal movement that spawned them, we approve of Linkin Park, and will always scream along whenever One Step Closer comes on our iPod.
So we're pleased to learn Linkin Park will be performing at the St. Pete Times Forum in January, according to their website. It'll be the second show of their 2011 tour behind new disc A Thousand Suns.
The band is scheduled to perform at the Forum on Jan. 22, though tickets details are still a little squishy. Fan club presales are scheduled to start the first weekend of December, but there's no word yet on availability for the general public just yet. We'll keep you posted when we hear something.
By the way: This show will take place one day after Barry Manilow rocks the Forum. Fun times!
