Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil was roaring with the sounds of Linkin Park and fans singing (and screaming!) along to Chester Bennington and friends last night, August 19, 2013.
While some of us were late rushing over to Bukit Jalil thanks to the Monday rush hour traffic, the vibe was definitely electric. Even from outside the stadium the cheers of fans before, during and after each song caused late comers to feel extremely kancheong, and thankfully the boys of Linkin Park did not disappoint.
We came, we screamed, we headbanged our hearts out; it was, the ultimate stress reliever of what would have been an otherwise mundane Monday.
Besides the awesome tunes that brought most of us back to our emo-filled teen days, nothing struck us more than how Chester was still able to sing and scream after all these years. And if you’re still wondering – yes, the boys still look and sound good. Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn, Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell and of course Chester seemed to be frozen in time, and in a good way too – rendering us back to our awkward teenage-crush phase once again.
Midway through the set, Chester said that this would be their last show for the rest of the year while the whole group starts writing new material for their fans.
Thanks boys for dropping by our part of town, we look forward to seeing you again. Even if it is 10 years from now, we’ll still be rocking along!
