Linkin Park Rock ‘Burn It Down’ at 2012 Billboard Music Awards
Linkin Park brought the rock at this year’s Billboard Music Awards tonight (May 20) in Los Angeles by performing their new single ‘Burn It Down‘ off their upcoming album ‘Living Things’ (due June 26).
With smoke on the floor and flames bursting in the background, singer Chester Bennington belted out the tune as the rest of guys backed him up on an industrial-looking stage set-up. Rhyme-slinger Mike Shinoda chimed in about halfway through the song with his rap verses.
On a night that was dominated by pop, R&B and hip-hop, Linkin Park represented the rock world with a powerful performance. The televised gig offered a preview of what fans can expect on the band’s upcoming trek with Incubus on this summer’s Honda Civic Tour, which kicks off Aug. 11 in Bristow, Va.
