Linkin Park have recently played their "Concert for the Phillippines" benefit show at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA. Organised by the band's "Music for Relief" charity fund, the event featured the appearance of various special guests, including the Offspring, Bad Religion, Tom Morello, Heart and more.

Linkin Park were joined by the number of guests onstage for a few songs. Ann and Nancy Wislon of Heart performed the band's "Castle of Glass" single off their latest studio record "Living Things," Incubus' Mike Einziger joined the band for "What I've Done" and "In the End," the final lines of the band's song "Iridescent" (off their fourth studio effort "A Thousand Suns") were sung by the Fihlarmonic, and the band's drummer Rob Bourdon played an epic drum solo with Blink 182's sticksman Travis Barker over the bridge of "Bleed It Out." Watch the footage of all of the collaborations below.

Last year, the band's co-founder and mastermind Mike Shinoda confirmed the release of Linkin Park's sixth studio album in 2014, giving a couple of comments on the record's sound: "I hesitate to say what it sounds like because every time I do that people take that and run with it and it ends up not - I mean, we change our minds about what's gonna happen every couple weeks."

In the other news, the band has announced their appearance at Download 2014, promising that they will perform their debut album "Hybrid Theory" in it's entirety.

    Generally, I think they put on a pretty good show but after watching these few clips it WAS really underwhelming. You can tell Chester is sick though which sucks but you can't really help and it happens. But the drum solo is exactly the same as it always has been which is boring. And since they and Travis Barker you think they'd do something cooler. Also the performance with Heart is awful. It was so out of tune.
    Was looking forward to hearing Mike Einziger do something interesting on In The End... I guess even he can't save these guys.
    It really is a shame how underwhelming this was. The "epic" drum solo Rob Bourdon played at the end of Bleed it Out is the EXACT drum solo he played in Bleed it Out when I saw them in 2007 AND on their Milton Keynes DVD.
    Chester's backing vocals were good in "In The End" but as soon as it got to the chorus... Wow... He put a measly 1% into it, absolute lackluster effort. No power and no support behind the vocals there. I know that when it comes to these live clips such as the ones from Wacken and whatnot it's straight from the desk and if the engineer is doing a poor job then the whole thing sounds like crap. But, even so, you can tell the vocals lack power here.

    One thing I've never liked about LP is that the live music sounds like it comes from a studio and is heavily over produced.
    Wow, Chester has lost every bit of raspiness in his voice... and pretty much the same thing happened to the guitars.
