Gig review: Linkin Park – 02 Academy Brixton – 4th July 2017

Linkin Park are one of those bands that appeal to all types of music lovers from heavy metal to pop and have had well-deserved worldwide success. They are currently on a tour promoting their latest album “One More Light”, their seventh studio album (released on May 19, 2017).

Last night’s show at Brixton’s 02 Academy was awesome. I last saw Linkin Park at the Sonisphere Festival back in 2009, so I was looking forward to the show because I know their live performances are fantastic.

The Academy was packed and it was a warm evening so it was really hot and sticky in the venue. I’m not very familiar with the band’s new songs yet, but I had heard a few of them and in particular I like “Good Goodbye” from the new album, so it was great to hear that played live. It sounded amazing and Stormzy joined the band on stage for that song.
