Linkin Park and Incubus Set To Co-Headline 2012 Honda Civic Tour
Linkin Park are ready to take the world by storm in 2012 with ‘Living Things,’ their fifth full length album and third consecutive outing with producer Rick Rubin at the helm. With the anticipation for the new album reaching fever pitch, LP announced they will join forces with another rock giant for the 2012 Honda Civic Tour — Incubus.
Both Linkin Park and Incubus rose to prominence around the same time and — because of their appeal outside of the genre as well as within — it’s a bit surprising the two haven’t joined forces before. “Linkin Park and Incubus fans have grown up together,” says Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington in a statement. “We’re looking forward to bringing them all together for a great night of music.” The fans won’t be the only ones enjoying themselves, according to Incubus singer Brandon Boyd, who adds, “We’re going to have a blast on this tour, and I know the fans will, too.”
The tour kicks off August 11 in Bristow, Va., with openers Mutemath along for the entire run — Incubus join the fun on the tour’s third scheduled date in Boston, Mass. Tickets for the 2012 Honda Civic Tour go on sale to the general public April 27, but those who pre-order ‘Living Things’ at Linkin Park’s website will be allowed to purchase tickets on April 24. Members of LP Underground — Linkin Park’s fan club — will also be eligible for the presale tickets, as well as early venue access and meet and greet opportunities.
‘Living Things’ is Linkin Park’s fifth studio LP and is the follow-up to 2010′s ‘A Thousand Suns’ — the album goes on sale June 26 but you can check out the lyric video for the lead single ‘Burn it Down’ now.
