I love that Linkin Park – this big, loud, audacious rock band, also has a big heart. The group, which has been around for 12 years, having burst onto the scene with their debut, Hybrid Theory, and now recently released Living Things, just wrapped up a US tour with Incubus.
Known for their active charity efforts, in the form of their Music for Relief organization, Linkin Park continues to do what it can to help with their latest effort Power The World, an initiative sanctioned by the UN to help people get access to energy around the world. Linkin Park has pledged to help 1 million families gain access to sustainable energy throughout this year. One of the ways is through providing solar suitcases, which helps childbearing mothers and babies, in Uganda.
1.3 billion people don’t have access to electricity – this, says bassist Phoenix, is what ignited the band’s interest in helping to find solutions…
Linkin Park will be performing two stadium shows live for the first time ever in South Africa on 7th November at Cape Town Stadium and 10th November at the Soccer City Complex, FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.
