Multi-platinum artists Linkin Park will broadcast LIVE for one night only on Saturday, September 8 exclusively on AXS TV, Linkin Park and AXS TV co-founder and President Mark Cuban jointly announced today.
Fans at home will get a chance to see one of the summer’s most successful and acclaimed tours LIVE as Linkin Park closes out the North American leg of their blockbuster Honda Civic Tour. Along with over 25,000 fans inside The Home Depot Center in Carson, California, the AXS TV audience will experience the electricity of the live concert event as the Grammy Award winning band brings it’s latest album, LIVING THINGS to life along with its catalog of chart-topping songs.
“AXS TV is the perfect home for Linkin Park and the electric show they give fans every night,” said Mark Cuban. “Our audience will experience this Linkin Park concert event in the exact way the band intended– engaged, electrifying and, most importantly, 100% LIVE. We are excited to bring their music to our national audience and invite Linkin Park to BURN IT DOWN live on AXS TV.”
“If you couldn’t make it out to the shows, this is the closest experience you will get,” said lead singer Chester Bennington. “ This has been an incredible tour, and we’re excited for our fans to see it in the highest quality.”
“Co-produced by Shinoda and long time collaborator Rick Rubin, the material is the bands most powerful since its megahit 2000 debut.”
