And, if that weren’t enough, Linkin Park are giving free tickets to the military.

“As we begin 2003’s Projekt Revolution – our annual festival-style tour dedicated to the convergence of musical styles – we feel the need to give back to those making personal sacrifices for our country,” guitarist Brad Delson said. “So, we’ve set aside tickets in every city we’re playing to invite armed services personnel and their families to attend the shows for free.

“Our hope is that during this difficult and challenging time, these special guests enjoy a moment of entertainment and fun.”

Linkin Park is all about the “thank yous” these days. The band recently gave a big thanks to their fan club members, LP Underground, with a free tour for them.

Projekt Revolution launches April 8 in Rochester, N.Y., and will hit arenas in mostly the Midwest and Southern states through the end of the month. Come June 7, Linkin Park will head over to Europe for a couple of festival gigs before heading back across the pond for a turn on the tour, headed by Metallica.

This is the band’s second Projekt Revolution tour. Their first outing helped boost the band onto POLLSTAR’s annual Top 100 Tours list last year.
