I just watched the Metallica DVD S&M and also read about Deep Purple’s Concert in the Albert hall back in 1999. Both these concerts had the element of an orchestra big band accompanying the bands’ songs.
Having heard a lot of Linkin Park’s songs and their recent album Living Things, I was wondering if Linkin Park could do the same. Granted, it’s not an original idea, but very few rock bands have done such a thing and there’s no harm in Linkin Park joining that elite group.
This would be my set-list
- Intro/From The Inside
- Somewhere I Belong
- What I’ve Done
- Castle of Glass
- I’ll Be Gone
- Breaking The Habit
- In Between
- Until It Breaks/Waiting for the End
- Valentine’s Day
- The Little Things Give You Away
- The Catalyst
- Leave Out All The Rest/Shadow of The Day/Iridescent
- Roads Untraveled
- Hands Held High/Crawling
- In The End
- A Place for My Head( watch the rock in Rio 2012 performance, remove the intro and add symphonic elements. Perfect Closer)
(Note that I haven’t added One Step Closer, Papercut, Burn It Down, Don’t Stay, No More Sorrow and Lost In The Echo because they’re just too energetic for symphonic accompaniments. Need I say more about other tracks like Victimized and Given Up??)
The purpose of this thread is to hear your thoughts on the same; why it would be a good idea (and if so, your preferred set list), whether its a waste of time, or if the band needs to put out more material before attempting it.
