Formed in 1996, Linkin Park has been producing hit hard rock songs for over a decade.  Easily distinguishable due to their vocal tandem of Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda, they have released critically acclaimed albums such as Hybrid Theory and Meteora and sold over 50 million albums worldwide.

Now they bring their eclectic blend of metal and rap to Jiffy Lube Live on Saturday night, touring on the strength of their recently released fifth album “Living Things,” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts earlier this summer.    This is sure to be one of the hottest shows of the summer and tickets are still on sale.  If you grew up in the late 90′s banging your head to Linkin Park, this is surely a concert you won’t want to miss! Get there early to catch openers Mutemath, who put on a great show.
