LINKIN PARK FANS CAN MAKE 3D STATUES OF THEMSELVES ON CURRENT TOUR

Linkin Park is bringing along a start-up tech company called Staramba USA Corp. on the current Carnivores Tour that will allow fans to make mini-statues of the band, themselves and even band members and fans together via 3D body scanning and printing hardware. Stationed at each of the trek's 25 stops will be two mobile "Scannerdomes" comprised of hundreds of individual computer lenses where fans can have themselves scanned for 3D "selfies." The finished figurines will be delivered to the fan's home by courier shortly after the concert.

The scanners are based at each concert location in trucks decorated with the Linkin Park and Staramba logo.

In keeping with their futuristic souvenirs, Linkin Park is bringing a high-tech live show on the road this time, as frontman Mike Shinoda explained: "One of the challenges that I posed on the production team was, based on what we decide to do with the show every night, if we decide to play something differently, if we decide to extend a part or whatever we want to do, I want the artwork to change with the performance. So it needs to be malleable and that's where the real production challenges start to arise." .

Linkin Park is touring behind its sixth studio album, The Hunting Party.
