Multi-platinum, two-time Grammy-winning rock band Linkin Park’s much-anticipated lineup for its annual Projekt Revoluton 2008 tour has been finalized with former Soundgarden/Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell, electro-rockers The Bravery and Ashes Divide, featuring Billy Howerdel, known for his work with A Perfect Circle. The Revolution stage will be headlined by metallic act Atreyu and features hard hitters 10 Years, fiery Ohio natives Hawthorne Heights and buzz band Armor For Sleep. Also performing will be percussive force Street Drum Corps. The fifth installment of the tour launches July 16 in Boston and winds down Aug. 24 in Houston, TX.
In keeping with the theme of revolution, Linkin Park is teaming with tour promoter Live Nation and doing a revolutionary thing: giving back to their fans by picking up the tab for the service fees normally tacked onto concert ticket prices. This precedent-setting, no-service-charge limited time offer is available to artist fan club members. Beginning today, April 4, fans can take advantage of Linkin Park’s special offer to cover the cost of extra fees by pre-ordering tickets at LPUnderground.com or through Live Nation’s website. Tickets for select dates go on sale nationally beginning April 11.
“As a thank you to our fan club, we’re picking up part of the tab for their tickets to this summer’s Projekt Revolution,” said Linkin Park co-frontman Mike Shinoda in a statement. “We’ll be paying the service charge on fanclub pre-sale tickets, which will save each fan roughly $8-$11. Our fan club has been incredibly loyal and supportive, and we hope this gesture lets them know how much we appreciate them.”
In addition, Linkin Park is once again offering their fans the option of purchasing the Digital Souvenir Package, a promotion that provides concert-goers with a special post-gig memento: a live audio download and exclusive concert photos of that night’s performance by Linkin Park, as well as a digital tour program. Also, for every ticket sold $1 will go toward Music for Relief to support disaster relief and reduce global warming. In just over a year, Music For Relief has raised more than $1 million for reforestation, planting nearly 800,000 trees.
