Linkin Park to Stream Performance from Rio+Social Event

Linkin Park

Linkin Park are joining forces with the United Nations Foundation and several other organizations for  Rio+Social.  As part of their involvement, LP will stream a performance from Los Angeles on June 19.

Rio+Social is an event that will further the global initiative for sustainable energy and will simultaneously explore the roles social media and technology can have in the movement. Linkin Park is jumping aboard to help, as many of the concepts align with their current ‘Power the World’ program.

“We believe today’s youth are global citizens and are better connected and informed than any previous generation.” said Linkin Park bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell. “Rio+Social is an historic opportunity allowing youth to participate in the global discussion about critical issues like sustainability in a way that has not been possible before.”

The band’s role in the multi-day event will include a dynamic discussion about how gaming, social media and music can be used to promote sustainable energy awareness, and will be capped off by a performance from the band. The performance will be streamed (via the Rio+Social official website) from Los Angeles on June 19 at 5:30PM BRT (4:30PM ET) and will feature songs from LP’s forthcoming album, ‘Living Things.’

Linkin Park drop their new album, ‘Living Things,’ on June 26 and are traveling across North America with Incubus on the Honda Civic Tour.
