L.A. SUPERSTARS TO APPEAR AT JUNE 29 DODGERS/METS GAME
The L.A. Dodgers have been trying to entice fans to start attending games more often again after the brutal attack on Giants fan Brian Stowe at Dodger Stadium last March. The free bobbleheads didn’t make a dent for us, but this announcement of a June 29 game against the Mets initially sounded VERY promising:
“GO TO THE DODGERS GAME WITH LINKIN PARK!”
Before you get revved for a great night of live rock and roll, however, you should know that there is good news and bad — really bad — news.
The good: Chester Bennington and his Linkin Park pals will be there to throw out the first ball.
The bad: After tossing the first pitch, the band is, um, splitting the scene! WTH?! Oh, but Dodger Stadium will be cranking LP’s music, including new stuff from Living Things, which drops June 26. The tracks will be synchronized with a post-game fireworks show. Woo-hoo! (Editor’s Note: That was a sarcastic “woo-hoo.”)
L.A. fans will have to wait until June 29 to see the band live, during the X Games at Downtown L.A.’s Nokia Theatre, and in September, when LP will rock the Southland with Incubus.
