Linkin Park shows Vegas what they are all about
As the lights came up on the stage, that familiar keyboard riff that everybody knows and loves started playing and Linkin Park opened their show at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2012 with "In The End."
They had the crowd on their feet and jumping when they cranked things up with 'Bleed it Out" and then Mike Shinoda did a shortened version of "Until It Breaks" from the band's new album "Living Things."
From there they transitioned into the always familiar "Waiting for the End" which was a crowd favorite, and then they did a medley of "Lost in the Echo/Shadow of the Day/Iridescent."

Mr. Hahn led the way into "Numb" and Mike Shinoda ended it by doing a little bit of the "Encore" rap!
Next up was "Leave Out All The Rest," and another classic from the "Minutes To Midnight" album that no Linkin Park show would be complete without, "What I've Done."
Mike told Chester Bennington that he "liked the way he sings" and said he should "keep that up." Being the phenomenal vocalist that he is, that was no problem at all for Chester.
The stage turned from blue to a reddish orange and they transitioned into their latest single "Burn It Down," complete with real fire and pyro!
Think that was the end of the show? Don't turn your back just yet! They cranked it up and rocked "Faint."
The end? Nope. One more! Mike told the fans that this was their last chance to "let all that energy out" and they turned it up to 11 for "One Step Closer" to wrap up an incredible show.
