Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park brings his first tour as a solo artist to Bangkok with a gig at Muangthai GMM Live House, 8th floor of CentralWorld on August 9.



Shinoda is a songwriter, rapper and producer who has been a major driving force behind the global success of Linkin Park for 22 years. The American rock band has claimed several prestigious music awards, including two Grammies, five American Music awards, and 10 MTV Europe Music awards. The band has sold 55 million albums and has fans around the world.

He is also a member of the Fort Minor Project, which release a spate of hip-hop tracks including “Where’d You Go” in 2005. “Post Traumatic” is the first album released under his real name as a solo artist. This album is about healing from the death of his band mate, Chester Bennington. He named his first solo album and accompanying tour “Post Traumatic”, he says, because “it’s a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness.”

Tickets for the show start at Bt1,600 and are now on sale at Thai Ticket Major outlets and online at www.ThaiTicketMajor.com.
