linkin park

Linkin Park's new album, 'One More Light', hit #4 on the UK's Official Albums Chart and topped the charts in the USA and now the band return to our shores this summer for a very special event, 'One More Night In London'.

The show will take place at O2 Academy Brixton on July 4th and tickets are on sale right here.

'One More Night In London' is mid-way through the band's 'One More Light' World Tour. The European leg kicks off on June 9th and Linkin Park also play three other dates in the UK, including London's O2 Arena on July 3rd, Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena on July 6th and Manchester Arena on July 7th.

It's been an exciting week for Linkin Park as they made their first ever appearance on 'Good Morning America' with an unprecedented pop-up performance in a New York subway at Grand Central Terminal. They released their ten-track, seventh studio album 'One More Light' on May 19th and notched up their sixth #1 album on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, selling over 111,000 copies. In the UK, they scored the highest charting new release, finishing the week at #4.

Linkin Park are one of the world's most successful bands. They are the biggest band on Facebook, and command a massive YouTube channel of over three billion plays and seven million subscribers. Their first album, 'Hybrid Theory', is the best-selling debut of this century, certified diamond (ten million) in the US. They have won two Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, four MTV VMA Awards, ten MTV Europe Music Awards and three World Music Awards.

They have sold out stadiums around the world, headlining some of the biggest music festivals including Download, Reading and Leeds in the UK, Rock in Rio in Portugal and Summer Sonic in Japan, as well as the distinction of being the first and only western rock band to play a five stadium tour in China.

Their most recent tour was their most successful World Tour to date - playing to over one-and-a-half million fans in sixteen countries. In 2005, the band founded Music For Relief, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing aid to victims of natural disasters and the prevention of such disasters. Since its inception, MFR has raised over nine million dollars for multiple victims across four continents, including Hurricane Katrina, China's Wenchuan earthquake, a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, earthquakes in Haiti and Japan in 2010, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
