Rock group Linkin Park headlined the Staples Center in support of their latest album, A Thousand Suns. The Grammy award-winning group took the stage in front of a sold-out crowd and received an overwhelming ovation. As “The Requiem” played in the background with strobe lights and projectors, everyone cheered with anticipation and excitement.

Fan favorite “Papercut” started the hundred-minute performance by the six-piece act. Singer Chester Bennington delivered his signature screams throughout the night with no signs of exhaustion. His powerful vocal chords competed only with the audience, who sang every single word from beginning to end. Singer Mike Shinoda alternated with Bennington and also contributed to guitars and percussion. Mr. Hahn added the electronic and rock/hip-hop style that has made the band a household name around the world.

Twenty-one songs were performed throughout the evening, including “Numb,” “Crawling” and “In the End.” Shinoda repeatedly shouted, “It’s good to be home” as Angelenos exploded with cheers. During “What I’ve Done,” Shinoda jumped into the crowd as they carried him across the floor on their shoulders. They closed the night with “Bleed It Out” while remixing it with “A Place for My Head,” an L.A.-only treat.
