Two years without Projekt Revolution Tour and 4 years without album, it is only right that Linkin Park Shows its shine this year.
Linkin Park that gain the partnership of My Chemical Romance to headline 2007 Projekt Revolution Tour is set to launch the tour on July 25 in a city waiting to be announced later this month. The tour will crisscross North America, visit Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa, Camden and many more before winding down on September 3 in Englewood, Colo.
Supporting acts expected in the main stage are Taking Back Sunday, H.I.M., Placebo and Julien-K. Meanwhile, the smaller Revolution Stage will be occupied by Mindless Self Indulgence, Saosin, The Bled, Styles of Beyond and Madina Lake. Linkin Park as the headliner is conducting this tour to promote new album "Minutes to Midnight" which is due May 15.
Tickets to this year's tour will go off on May 19 and for every ticket sold, $1 will go to American Forests' tree planting project.
Linkin Park had the first Projekt Revolution tour in 2003, with a line up that was comprised of Mudvayne and Xzibit. One year after Ghostface Killah, Korn and Snoop Dogg were on the bill and the tour started to use two stages. There was a plan for 2005 and 2006 batch but eventually the band decided to postpone it until they have an album to promote with.
Following the previous years' successful Projekt Revolution Tour, Linkin Park has one reason behind the revival. "This is very important tour for us, so we're excited to announce the return of Projekt Revolution," Linkin Park co-frontman Chester Bennington said. "We wanna go out there and kick as much ass as we can, and with the bill we've assembled, the pressure will be on us to prove we deserve to headline it."
