THE PROJEKT REVOLUTION TOUR comes to the Nissan Pavilion on Sunday. This mega Rock Show brings together everyone from rappers Cypress Hill to alt-metallers Adema, DJ Z-Trip and emo stars Taking Back Sunday; nu-metal arena-rockers Linkin Park are the headlining act.
So what is a pan-sexual British-alt-rock band with glam tendencies dong on the bill, sandwiched in between Orgy side project Julien-K and goth-rockers H.I.M.?
Placebo guitarist/vocalist Brian Molko feels comfortable on the bill. "It's really a great tour for us. It's going really well, but there's an added challenge to it as well because, basically, it's not our own tour. It's a challenge for us to try to steal a few of [Linkin Park's] fans, you know, which is pretty much our agenda, and I think it's starting to work."
Despite all the talk of winning over fans, Molko insists things are very friendly between his saucy trio and the tougher Linkin. "We ended up [on the tour] simply because Linkin Park were fans and invited us," said the American-born, London-raised singer. "There's a fantastic camaraderie on the tour," he says. "Linkin Park are not only very approachable, but they approach you, so there are no egos backstage."
