Linkin Park Bring Stellar Performance To Amsterdam On 'One More Light' Tour
While Linkin Park have partially shifted to focus to pop songs, Sum 41 are still as heavy as ever and showcased true metal and rock greatness this night. With some of the poppunk anthems such as 'Motivation' and 'In Too Deep', Sum 41 showed an older side of them, a side that was familiar for most of the older attendees. The Canadian band recently joined forces again old guitarist Dave Baksh, which puts them in a great position to focus a tad more on the guitars rather than Deryck Whibley's vocals. As a result, their new album '13 Voices' is packed with killer riff actions, something they weren't shy to show-off tonight
Sum 41's performance is always a treat, and the band performing in an arena does not disappoint. Hopefully the band will return fast for a show of their own, in a venue close to the capacity as this one.
A few minutes before the show, the audience was instructed to record their performance of 'Talking To Myself' in full and upload it onto a website given by the band. They would use the footage for a live music video for the track. Anyway, 'Talking To Myself' marked the beginning to a set of great diversity, creativity and quite frankly brilliance. Linkin Park left no stone unturned for their 2-hour lasting set and tracks from all era's were being performed. Soft tracks from the brand new record 'One More Light' were quickly followed by heavy old tracks such as 'One Step Closer' and 'Breaking The Habit'.
