Linkin Park will be joined on the tour by two other hard rock stalwarts, Of Mice and Men and Rise Against. We caught Rise Against just a few months ago, and they put on a fantastic show, in front of their ardent area fans. See the review here.
“After crossing paths with these guys at festivals around the world over the past decade, we’re excited to finally share the road with Linkin Park,” adds Tim Mcllrath, lead vocalist/ guitarist of Rise Against. “We think this will be a great experience for all our collective fans.” Tickets for this killer line-up go one sale this Friday, November 7th at 10AM.
Here are the details from the Amway Center Press Release:
Austin Carlile, of, Of Mice & Men recently joined Linkin Park on stage in Los Angeles during the band’s hugely successful Carnivores Tour this past summer. “We are really excited to be joining Linkin Park on The Hunting Party Tour. I performed the song ‘Faint’ with them recently at The Hollywood Bowl and it was incredible. Can’t wait to bring that experience to all of our dedicated fans across America,” said Carlile. “The opportunity to tour with a band that inspired me to pursue music is mind-blowing, and that’s exactly what we want fans to experience when they see us together on tour.”
