MILWAUKEE (November 11, 2014) – Milwaukee World Festival, Inc. officials are excited to announce the second major show slated for the 2015 festival. LINKIN PARK with special guest A Day to Remember will headline the Marcus Amphitheater on Tuesday, June 30.
On their sixth studio album, The Hunting Party, Linkin Park has combined expert craftsmanship with a willingness to let go of the steering wheel, capturing their ever-innovative spirit. Stripping back the looped guitars and synthesized beats, the band took cues from the more aggressive elements of their record collection, and the result is their heaviest album to date. Seeing them live, it becomes clear why this band can headline a festival of this magnitude. Linkin Park have the ability not only to reproduce their powerful sound live, but also create incredible re-mixes, turning their concerts into nothing less than music extravaganzas.
