Video: Linkin Park: 'Outdoor Festivals Killed The Live Experience'

Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has claimed that outdoor festivals are ruining live gigs. Watch the interview above.

Speaking to NME, Bennington said that he prefers playing indoors at the band's own shows as opposed to bigger, open-air gigs.

"Rock'n'roll is not meant to be played with the sun shining on your face," he says. "It can be done, but it's done begrudgingly. Inside. Dark, lights, controlled environment. Always better."

Linkin Park tour the UK in November, playing Manchester Phones 4u Arena (November 22) and London O2 Arena (23).

The O2 Priority Tickets presale for both dates opens at 9am tomorrow (July 9).

Tickets go on general sale on Friday (July 11). To check the availability of Linkin Park tickets and get all the latest listings, head to NME.COM/tickets.
