Seriously. This video was shot months before 'Hybrid Theory' was even out.

A video of one of the first Linkin Park live shows has resurfaced online, and it pre-dates their debut album 'Hybrid Theory' by a matter of months. 

It's hard to remember a time when Linkin Park weren't filling some of the biggest venues in the world, but this video serves as a reminder. The video shows Linkin Park playing at Phoenix, Arizona's Mason Jar- a venue with a capacity of only 300. 

The video was shot in full by a fan at Linkin Park's gig in Phoenix, Arizona on August 15, 2000 where they were supporting The Union Underground on their An Education In Rebellion tour. 

The release of Linkin Park's breathrough debut album 'Hybrid Theory' follows this show by over two months, officially being released on October 24, 2000. 

The video is shaky and pretty low quality- but it was filmed over 18 years ago. So we're willing to be quite forgiving here.

Check out the full setlist of the show, plus the full video below:

01. Papercut
02. Forgotten
03. Points Of Authority 
04. With You 
05. Runaway
06. And One
07. In The End 
08. A Place For My Head 
09. One Step Closer
