Linkin Park announces streaming event featuring archived 2002 concert & new Q&A

Warner Records

Linkin Park has announced a global streaming event to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s 2000 diamond-certified debut album, Hybrid Theory.

The online special will begin with a newly recorded Q&A session, marking the first time all of the LP band members — co-vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Mike Shinoda, guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, turntablist Joe Hahn and drummer Rob Bourdon — have gotten together for an interview since frontman Chester Bennington‘s death in 2017.

The Q&A will then be followed by a stream of an archived, never-before-aired Linkin Park concert from the Projekt Revolution tour in 2002.

The stream will premiere this Friday, October 9 at 9 a.m. PT. Tickets to watch are available now via Watch.LinkinPark.com.

That same day, Linkin Park will release their massive Hybrid Theory 20th anniversary reissue, which includes various demos, remixes, B-sides and live tracks, plus previously unreleased recordings.

Hybrid Theory was released October 24, 2000. It spawned the hit singles “In the End,” “Crawling,” “One Step Closer” and “Papercut.”
