Linkin Park and Incubus hit the road together for the first time ever this weekend when the two co-headliners launch the 2012 Honda Civic Tour on Saturday (August 11th) in Bristow, Virginia. Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington explained why this pairing is special: "We all have a lot of respect for Incubus. They're a really great band, exceptional live band. You know, one of the reasons why we haven't really played a lot together in the past is because we've kind of both been on this juggernaut voyage of our own. They're a really big band, they've sold tons of records, they're a great headlining act. That's what I think is so exciting about this tour, is that our fans get to see two headlining bands on the same bill doing their headlining sets."
Asked recently by Noisecreep about the possibility of the two bands jamming onstage together at any point, Boyd said, "I have a sneaking suspicion that some of us will be sneaking onstage in each other's sets."
Incubus has been touring since last summer behind its seventh studio album, If Not Now, When? Singer Brandon Boyd said recently that the group plans to go on hiatus after this tour winds down.
Linkin Park's fifth disc, Living Things, landed at Number One on the Billboard album chart last month, selling 223,000 copies in its first week of release.
