Mike Shinoda all set to guest-host Nikki Sixx Radio show

Mike Shinoda of the Linkin Park would guest co-host The Side Show Countdown with NIKKI SIXX later this weekend. Coming in for host SIXX, who is now on the road with his band SIXX:A.M., Mike will join co-host Jenn Marino on the nationally syndicated popular weekend show as they play the newest tracks on the Active/Alternative charts and also demonstrate brand new music.

Shinoda would also talk about what is on the horizon for Linkin Park, including their forthcoming performance at Rock In Rio in Las Vegas on 9th May, and the band’s very recent collaboration with Steve Aoki, the well known EDM star, on the track “Darker Than Blood” that would appear on AOKI’s forthcoming 3rd studio album called “Neon Future II,” releasing on 12th May, and tour bus hazing, concert pranks, as well as his experience at the Coachella Festival this year.

Shinoda told that he was happy to fill in for NIKKIi, and always look forward to chatting with Jenn and their crew.

Meanwhile, as the Rock in Rio gets set to launch its very first event in the United States this spring, the well known fest has declared a collaboration with the Music for Relief, the disaster relief charity introduced by rockers Linkin Park. Their band member Mike Shinoda and pop band Echosmith got together with Rock in Rio CEO Luis Justo as well as Music for Relief COO Whitney Showler to declare the collaboration recently. Autograph guitars would be auctioned off at the fest to benefit Music for Relief.
