Linkin Park Reveal Venue for ‘Secret’ Charity Gig
For a couple of months, Linkin Park have been asking fans to raise money to gain admission into the band's 'secret' charity gig that will benefit tsunami relief efforts in Japan. Now, the band has finally revealed the venue of the concert.
Linkin Park, along with Japanese band B'z, will headline the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles on Aug. 31. Fans that raised at least $500 will be given to tickets to show, and so far more than $250,000 has been raised. The Top 50 fundraisers will be able to attend a private meet-and-greet with Linkin Park.
Meanwhile, Linkin Park have just signed on to co-headline the Deluna Festival taking place Oct. 14-16 in Pensacola Beach, Fla. Jane's Addiction and Weezer will also serve as headliners.
In other news, singer Chester Bennington recently told Rolling Stone that Linkin Park have begun working on a follow-up to last year's 'A Thousand Suns.' He said the band hopes to release the new album in 2012.
