Well, it’s been in the rumor mill for a long time, and it now looks like it’s finally happening. Linkin Park, in the middle of a world tour, promoting their new (blahhh) album, will be playing at Hongkou Stadium on November 18th. Tickets are rumored to be selling fast and can be purchased here, but for shows like this there always seem to be an endless abundance of ticket scalpers selling tickets (beware the fakes) before the performance.
If you happen to be in Beijing for the October Holiday, the Modern Sky Festival has finally confirmed that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be headliners on October 4th. Check out the Modern Sky Festival web page for the latest news regarding their festival.
