In a few days, Mike Shinoda is kicking off the North American Post Traumatic Tour! You can go here to get tickets and be a part of the fun with Mike Shinoda.
He joined me to talk about how the shows have changed since the start of things this summer, that each night he will read the crowd and decide what to play based on what he's feeling. It also helps that Mike has a band that is great at improvisation, that they can roll with whatever comes along in the set.
We also discussed people should celebrate life, not get trapped in mourning and grief. It's a big rollercoaster ride of emotions, but the best thing to do is to remember the happy times with those that we've lost.
Mike Shinoda gave us the scoop on how everyone should be prepared for sock puppets o' plenty at the shows, his hope for the Dodgers in the playoffs and the possibility of a new food truck featuring Mrs. Shinoda's Famous Peanut Butter Fried Chicken!
Here's our conversation.
