Linkin Park: will they won’t they (again)?

UPDATE: Linkin Park’s management have confirmed that they won’t be coming to China any time soon. Don’t go buy those tickets…

OK, so Timeout Shanghai picked up a juicy nugget from the official Shanghai Cultural Information (government run) website. Apparently, Linkin Park are playing a New Year’s Eve gig at Hongkou Football Stadium, the stage for their original triumph way back in 2007.

This is strange for a number of reasons:

  1. Livenation had their multi-million $$ stadium tour in September cancelled due to an inauspicious meeting between the band and he who shall not be named
  2. Livenation don’t know anything about this new show – we would imagine they would have been given a heads up
  3. Can you imagine how freaking cold it will be in Hongkou stadium on the 31st December?

We are awaiting official confirmation/ denial shortly. In the meantime, perhaps hold off buying tickets…..
