“The shows were so amazing this summer we had to record them and share them with our fans,” said singer Chester Bennington. “Our fans are a huge part of everything we do and every concert we play.”
Vocalist Mike Shinoda added, “Until now, we’ve never put together anything that captures the energy of what we see at our concerts. LIVE IN TEXAS is a showcase of new and exclusive footage for all our fans, from those who have yet to watch us perform to those who have seen us in concert numerous times.”
The live DVD/CD combination package will feature the band’s entire show, backstage footage, and more. Rolling Stone magazine says of LIVE IN TEXAS, “The band rocks so hard, it almost feels like being at the show.”
