Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Dave “Phoenix” Farrell, warmed fan's hearts with a reunion performance on Wednesday (Oct. 31).
Shinoda, who is currently on a solo tour, was playing a show at the House of Blues in Las Vegas on Halloween night. Dressed as Run DMC, the band performed the rap group hit “It’s Tricky” before Farrell surprised the crowd and joined Shinoda on stage.
According to Loudwire, Shinoda and Farrell performed together for a nice chunk of the band’s set, and afterward, the two shared photos on social media of their “Run DMC” set. For those in attendance, the show was a pleasant surprise and treat for the sold-out crowd at the House of Blues.
As for their home band, it remains to be seen just what lies ahead for them.
On July 20, 2017, Linkin Park's lead vocalist, Chester Bennington, committed suicide. The band was entering the North American leg of their One More Light World Tour but canceled it after Bennington’s death. From then on, rumors have begun to surface of Linkin Park’s future without Bennington, with Shinoda replying to a fan tweet that the band has “every intention on continuing with LP.”
Shinoda is currently in the middle of a solo tour that will last until Nov. 17.
