Linkin Park have announced one Auckland show, in the first of what could be a wave of bands tagging New Zealand shows onto appearances at Australia's Soundwave Festival.

The multi-award winning band will play at Vector Arena on February 21 next year as part of their Living Things world tour.  

It will be the American band's first trip to New Zealand since they played to a sold-out Vector Arena in 2007.

Since their 2000 debut Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park and their blend of rap and rock has seen them produce some of the most commercially successful radio hits this side of the millennium.

With a back catalogue including Somewhere I Belong', Numb and the collaborative mash up hits from their team-up with Jay-Z on Collision Course, it will be a jam-packed set list.

Now onto their fifth studio album, Living Things debuted at the top of the Kiwi charts and remained in the top five for four consecutive weeks.

Led by singer Chester Bennington and rapper Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park has won more than 40 international awards, receiving close to 130 nominations around the world.
