The rap-rock leviathan Linkin Park hasn't played in its L.A. hometown since a small May 2012 benefit show at the House of Blues. Today, the group announced that it will end that absence with a headlining turn at this year's Sunset Strip Music Festival. "We started our career playing clubs on the Strip. It's a thrill to be back where it all began," lead singer Chester Bennington said in a statement. The band's fifth and most recent album, "Living Things," topped album charts when it was released last summer, and it was generally praised for its more thoughtful mix of electronics and emotive hard rock.
