Hot band keeps its pledge to city fans

Linkin Park, the Grammy-award winning band, will honor its promise of a return to Shanghai.

The band will perform at Shanghai Stadium on August 15, two years after its city debut and following the cancellation of its 2008 concert.

It is timely as the smash-hit movie "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" has taken China by storm. The Linkin Park Shanghai gig will be badged "New Divide," the theme from the movie that was composed by the group.

Linkin Park is regarded as one of the best live rock bands in the world.

Since its formation nine years ago, the group has won two Grammy awards. Its three albums have been sold more than 50 million copies.

Last year, the concert tour "Music For Relief" to help the victims suffering from natural disasters and deal with the problems of global warming was cancelled after lead singer Chester Bennington suffered a back injury and was under medical orders to refrain from traveling.

Tickets for Shanghai are on sale at Ticketmaster (
