This CD/DVD combo, packaged in jewel case features Linkin Park's concert set from the Summer Sanitorium Tour. The CD features 12 songs and the DVD 17, along with backstage footage, from August performances at Houston's Reliant Stadium and Irving's Texas
Recorded on the Dallas date of the 2003 Summer Sanitarium arena tour, with Metallica, Limp Bizkit, et. al, Live in Texas is a concise, no-frills two-disc DVD/CD souvenir of the muscular Linkin Park live experience. 5.1 Surround Sound captures every nuance of Brad Delson's explosive guitar, the incendiary turntable flourishes of DJ Joseph Hahn, and the interplay between MC Mike Shinoda and singer Chester Bennington (although the audience sing-along on "Numb" gets lost across the barricades), as the sextet runs through a tight set of selections drawn exclusively from its bestsellers Hybrid Theory and Meteora, with the big hits ("Crawling," "In the End") programmed toward the climax. Casual fans may grumble about the absence of extras--there's no backstage-with-the-band documentary or viewing angle options, no previously unreleased songs--but hardcore devotees (who get plenty of face time on the DVD) should appreciate the opportunity to revisit the thrills of Linkin Park in concert whenever they wish. --Kurt B.

For years, I have been searching for a new sound. I was tired of pop, rap, and poor-is-me grunge. The music industry was so busy pumping out clones that we were getting nothing new.
That is until.... Linkin Park hit the scene!
I must confess I was concerned about the live sound. Chester has such a strong voice and I was afraid it would hard to duplicate his sound outside the studio. (Plus, I didn't think his voice would take it) To my surprise, Chester does an amazing job in a live setting. In fact, the live performance adds so much since you are able to see the feeling and the energy he puts into his performance.
In listening the their studio work, the singers (Chester and Mike) overlap each other quite a bit. This is very hard to re-create effectively in a live performance but they did a superb job.
To be fair, the guitar lead in for crawling was a bit flat compared to the studio, but remember, in the studio things are mixed and re-mixed. Live, the guitarist, Brad, only has one guitar to perform the whole song with. So, it's ok. The song still rocked.
Also, be sure to look for the very expressive Mr. Hahn. His intensity is amazing. For those of you who do not think its art to scratch and mix records, watch this man work. I was amazed.
Rob (drummer) and Phoenix (bass) do a great job in their own right. Very powerful and very engaging.
Overall, this DVD is a must have for any collection.
p.s. Metallica, you were the kings of metal until you pissed off all your fans. You are still paying the price and probably wont recover. Linkin Park has the power and attitude to keep you off your throne. It's too bad. You were a great band. :-(

These guys can play all their material well, but their live shows seem very very boring. Theres very little crowd interaction, their in-between song banter consists of "thank... Read morePublished on July 15 2004
This is definitely a good buy. Yes, this is real, not studio recorded. There has been plenty of controversy over whether this is really them live. I must tell you. Read morePublished on July 3 2004 by Robert J Lucas
the album is a demonstration of their true talent. I have not heard one band out there like LP that can perform as good live as they do on this album. Read morePublished on June 25 2004 by ryan
Why didn't they do My December (their best song)? Or how about High Voltage? Both of those songs are great. Read morePublished on June 22 2004 by Slothmo

Linkin Park is a band that actually sounds good even live, unlike artists like Avril Lavigne and Michelle Branch (although I really like their CD's). Read morePublished on June 19 2004 by kailoont
DVD - 5 stars
CD - 3 stars
that's right the reason why my review is 4 stars is because it is an average of the scores of the 2 discs.
The DVD was really good. Read more
