Over the weekend, rumors had grown that the Ventura, CA stop of the Vans Warped Tour would have a special guest in the form of Linkin Park.
Warped Tour’s official Twitter was hinting at special guests for the day in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the traveling rock show, while Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has tweeted a simple message reading “Ventura, CA.”
Being better than detectives when need be, some made the instant connection, but it would take until the day of the show for Warped organizers to confirm that the band would be performing on the main stage.
During the set, which stuck to its normal half-an-hour time, the band performed some of their hits and had some members from Yellowcard, Issues, MGK, the Devil Wears Prada, Finch, Breathe Carolina, and A Day to Remember. In case you didn’t know, A Dat to Remember aren’t even on Warped Tour so that mean that this “secret” performance was big.
