Drummer Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson, DJ Joseph Hahn, singer Mike Shinoda and shouter Chester Bennington released their 6th studio album „The Hunting Party“ on June 13th 2014. After their incredible performances at “Rock am Ring” and “Rock im Park” in summer 2014, they returned to tour Europe in November 2014.
They played 16 shows in Europe between November 3rd and 24th, 9 of those in Germany. Special guest was the metal core band “Of Mice and Men” from California.

the also played hits like „One Step Closer“, „In the End“, „Bleed It Out“, „Crawling“ and „What I’ve Done“, of course.
