Mike Shinoda played his first solo show over the weekend. Some songs required he sing Chester’s parts.

Mike Shinoda, Chester Bennington’s co-vocalist, played his first solo show in LA over the weekend. He boldly chose a set list that featured not just his own material, but Linkin Park songs mashed up with his own. This required for him to sing Chester’s parts for songs like “In the End” and “Bleed It Out.”

To be fair, though, he let the fans do most of the singing when it came to Chester’s contributions. Read more about what happened at the gig here and here.

Mike’s solo album, Post Traumatic, comes out June 15.

Here’s what he performed:

01. Place To Start
02. Over Again
03. Watching As I Fall
04. Nothing Makes Sense Anymore
05. About You (feat. Blackbear)
06. Brooding (instrumental)
07. Promises I Can’t Keep
09. Hold It Together
10. Ghosts
11. Make It Up As I Go (feat. K.Flay)
12. Lift Off (feat. Chino Moreno & Machine Gun Kelly)
13. I.O.U.
14. Running From My Shadow (feat. Grandson)
15. World’s On Fire
