Though they are not as big an act as they were at the turn of the century, Linkin Park is still a band worthy of playing the Bell Centre. Formed in 1996 in California, this rock band gained massive commercial success with the release of their first album in 2000 entitled Hybrid Theory. Meteora, released in 2003, and Minutes to Midnight, released in 2007, continued their success. Linkin Park was able to mix nu metal and rap metal while making it radio friendly. Their last album, A Thousand Suns, release happened in September of 2010 and a world tour ensued.
Linkin Park over the course of their 14 years together has sold an impressive 50 million albums worldwide and won two Grammy Awards. They have collaborated with the likes of Jay-Z, Hans Zimmer, and Tricky. Known for their live shows, Linkin Park has toured with Cypress Hill, Snoop Dog, Metallica, Mudvayne, Limp Bizkit, and Deftones.
