Linkin Park is an extremely well-known rock band, formed in California in 1996. They’ve achieved huge mainstream popularity, selling over 60 million albums worldwide and taking home two Grammys. Even their first studio album was a huge success in Hybrid Theory (2000) at #2, followed by four more studio albums in Meteora (2003), Minutes to Midnight (2007), A Thousand Suns (2010), and Living Things (2012), all of which were #1. They just released The Hunting Party in June 2014, probably another big hit. Few bands ever have achieved this level of popularity this quickly. They’ve even gotten creative in other genres, like a mashup with Jay-Z. They’re true icons who understand how to capitalize the business. Their influences include Nine Inch Nails, The Roots, Deftones, and Aphex Twin, and they’re the first rock band to earn over one billion YouTube hits. The list of accolades goes on and on, and they’re still a young band. Get your tickets to see what VH1 called the greatest artists of the 2000s from Gold Coast Tickets!
