Transformers: Dark of the Moon is easily one of the biggest films to come out this summer and if history has proven anything, it’s that the movie will break box office records and Linkin Park will contribute a future chart topper for the soundtrack. While neither of those statements can be confirmed as true until June 29th when the movie hits theaters, they’ll both likely be validated at the movies world premiere in Russia this summer. Michael Bay’s 3D robot fighting extravaganza is set to open the Moscow International Film Festival on June 23rd. In attendance should be most of the film’s stars as well as Bay.
The very same night as the movies premier, the franchise’s favorite band Linkin Park (ugh) will play a free outdoor concert at Vasilyevsky Spusk of the Red Square in Moscow in honor of its release. Linkin Park has provided two #1 singles for the franchise, “What I’ve Done” for the first Transformers, and the underwhelming “New Divide” for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The concert is free and tickets are available beginning June 1st through June 21st on www.energyfm.ru or www.linkinpark.com. Hit the jump for the press release.
