For 2007, Linkin Park decided to make the tour ostensibly "green" by donating $1 of every ticket to American Forests through their charity Music for Relief and using biodiesel on a majority of their buses, eliminating an estimated 350 tons of carbon emissions.[1] There were also informative booths that showed concert goers how to lower their greenhouse gas emissions.[2]

It was revealed in Revolver magazine that Muse was in the list of bands Linkin Park had picked but couldn't join Projekt Revolution as they had other commitments to deal with.

On August 22, 2007, MySpace.com streamed the concert live, allowing MySpace users to watch the concert for free from their performance at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Michigan. The event was hosted by Matt Pinfield.

Linkin Park sold their performance from the 2007 PR tour at the merchandise booth. Each CD came with a blank disc and a special code that allowed fans to download and burn that specific Linkin Park performance from the venue it was purchased at. The price of purchase for the CD was $11.00. It was sold at every venue except for Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY due to disagreements with the venue wanting a portion of the CD sales. In October 2013, Linkin Park revealed that they will relaunch Projekt Revolution in 2014; it is on the list for To-Come.

Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance was married backstage to Lyn-Z, bassist of Mindless Self Indulgence, after the final show on the tour.

2008[edit]

This was the first time the tour was also outside of North America. Their performance in Milton Keynes was announced months beforehand, which made it highly anticipated amongst fans waiting to attend. Jay-Z came out and performed a modified "Numb/Encore" and "Jigga What/Faint" with the band.[3] This show turned out to be the biggest capacity Projekt Revolution to date. Camera operators obtaining interviews revealed intentions for a DVD, which has been confirmed by Mike Shinoda to be a CD/DVD set on November 25, 2008. Shinoda posted on the band's online forum that anyone 18 or older can submit a title for the live CD/DVD which will later be turned into a poll for fans to vote for their favorite. Concerning the release date, Shinoda stated "we will be releasing it in a DVD/CD combo pack as soon as we can get it done".

Controversy during 2008 tour[edit]

During the Projekt Revolution Tour of 2008, Busta Rhymes was announced to have left the tour after only eleven days due to "complicated business matters", amidst rumors he had been removed from the lineup after an alleged backstage confrontation with Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda.[6] Shinoda later posted on his blog that he and the rest of his band were disappointed to see Rhymes leave, implying that the rumour was false.[7] Busta actually left the tour due to an argument with his now former label Interscope Records. Since he left the label, he no longer had support to be on the tour.
