Linkin Park's comeback concert in Manila set for Aug 13

Two-time Grammy-winning alternative rock band Linkin Park will once again rock Manila for a one-night concert at SM Mall of Asia Arena on August 13. The official announcement places Manila as the only South East Asian city to host Linkin Park's Living Things tour in the region.

After heading to Japan, the multi-platinum rock band will make a stop in the Philippines to perform their hit songs before going to Hong Kong and Taiwan for their scheduled concerts.

Linkin Park first visited the country nearly a decade ago when it performed before 17,000 wild fans at the CCP open grounds in 2004. While the non-stop concert only lasted for less than two hours, their music continues to influence more Filipinos over the past decade.

This early, some Filipino fans have already expressed excitement using #LinkinParkLiveInManila2013 hashtag on social network Twitter--ranging from excited (@itsjenniferking: "I can now imagine Rob Bourdon's powerful drum solo for Bleed It Out live") to ecstatic (@rufiyagiou: "#LinkinParkLiveInManila2013 ito na yung matagal na nating inaantay... Wish granted! Thank you GOD!!! Thank you Linkin Park!!!").

Linkin Park's series of global concerts highlights their Living Things album which the band treats as very personal and is centered on human emotions and relationships. It is informed by and built upon all previous Linkin Park albums, while still pushing the band’s sound into new territory.

The band comprised of co-lead vocalist Chester Bennington, drummer/percussionist Rob Bourdon, guitarist Bra, bassist Dave 'Phoenix' Farrell, DJ, programmer Joe Hahn and  Mike Shinoda -- co-lead vocals, keyboards, guitar--has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, and is the biggest band on Facebook with over 52 million fans and counting.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
