While the clock on Linkin Park’s Countdown to Revolution Tour is just about done ticking, the band is already lining up a new trek.
The Projekt Revolution Tour, much like Linkin Park themselves, meshes rock and rap, with herbivores Cypress Hill, nü-metallers Adema and DJ Z-Trip slated to join the band on the bill, according to Linkin Park’s management.
The tour is expected to begin in mid-January and run through the end of February. An itinerary has yet to be hammered out.
The Countdown to Revolution tour, which also features (hed) pe, the X-ecutioners and the Apex Theory, winds down Wednesday (December 5) in Spokane, Washington. From there, Linkin Park will play a handful of radio-sponsored holiday shows, including the Almost Acoustic Christmas, hosted by Los Angeles’ KROQ, December 8 and 9 (see “Alicia Keys, Linkin Park, Sum41, Ja Rule, More Head To Holiday Radio Fests,” “Linkin Park, P.O.D., Nickelback, More To Play LA’s KROQ Fest” ).
Released last October, Linkin Park’s major-label debut, Hybrid Theory, is the best-selling rock record of 2001 (see “Got Charts? Britney, Linkin Park Give Peers A Run For Their Sales Figures” ). The LP has moved more than 4.4 million copies to date, according to SoundScan.
On Tuesday, the band was named the Modern Rock Artist of the Year at the Billboard Music Awards (see “Destiny’s Child, R. Kelly Win Big, Britney Gets Soaked At Billboard Awards” ).
