Linkin Park

Linkin Park and Jay-Z are to join forces for a massive summer show at the Milton Keynes Bowl.

They previously worked together on the Collision Course album in 2004, which featured the hit mash-up Numb/Encore.

It is the first time the nu-metallers have brought their travelling festival, Projekt Revolution, to the UK.

The event, which has been running since 2001, teams up artists of different musical genres.

In previous years, the line-up has featured the likes of My Chemical Romance, Ghostface Killah, Korn and Snoop Dogg on the same bill.


The supporting bill is yet to be announced.

Tickets for the gig, on 29 June, go on sale on 7 March.

Jay-Z has already been confirmed as a headliner at this summer's Glastonbury festival on 28 June.
