“You must know that there’s nothing higher, or stronger, or sounder, or more useful afterwards in life, than some good memory, especially a memory from childhood, from the parental home. “
The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno (GBK), South Jakarta. Wednesday, 21 September 2011.
It was the one of the unforgettable moments in my life. When I finally met my favorite band, my inspiration, my idol. They have been inspiring me since their first album released in 2000. Through their music, song lyrics, creativity and their concern about the humanitarian issues.
Yes. They are Linkin Park. Mike Shinoda, Chester Bennington, Joe Hahn, Dave Phoenix Farell, Brad Delson and Rob Bourdon.
I also met my new friends. New family. We are soldiers. Linkin Park Underground.
The concert began around 8.30 PM, with “The Requiem”. It was Linkin Park’s second appearance in Indonesia. Their first performance here was on 13 June 2004 at Carnaval Beach in Ancol, North Jakarta.
I still remember when I attended their first concert with my friends. It entertained about 35,000 fans who sang along the songs from the award-winning albums Hybrid Theory and Meteora.
When Linkin Park announced their second concert here on their twitter account, I was very exited. I was looking forward to hearing their new songs played live.
The second concert was awesome! The stage, lighting, sound and their performance were perfect. They really rocked GBK!
