Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda and bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell reunited onstage on Tuesday night during Shinoda’s solo concert in Las Vegas. Farrell sat in for a good portion of Shinoda’s set, hopping up for “Papercut” and then sticking around for an encore that included Linkin Park numbers “Iridescent,” “Castle of Glass” and “Good Goodbye / “Bleed It Out.”
After the performance, Shinoda posted a number of photos from the evening on social media and thanked Farrell for joining in “for a bunch of songs.” Farrell can also be seen in a photo posing as Run-DMC’s biggest fan and getting an autograph from Shinoda, who dressed up for Halloween in his best Run-DMC gear and even opened the show with a bit of “It’s Tricky.”
Shinoda is currently in the midst of a North American headlining tour in support of his recent solo album, Post-Traumatic. He next performs this Friday (November 2nd) in Los Angeles.
Linkin Park has not performed together in public since last October, when the surviving members staged a tribute concert in Los Angeles to late singer Chester Bennington. The band has not officially announced whether it intends to carry on following the death of Bennington, who committed suicide in July 2017 at the age of 41.
