VIDEO: Linkin Park rock Transformers film launch in Moscow

Linkin Park hit Moscow’s Red Square Thursday evening for the “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” world premiere.

Currently on tour in support of “A Thousand Suns,” the band contributed to the film’s soundtrack, including the lead single “Iridescent.”

"Linkin Park have always been huge 'Transformers' fans,"
the movie's director Michael Bay told a news conference a few hours before the show. "They do very 'movie-esque' kind of music. We've had a good run - their tracks for the first two movies became number one hits, and their song for this movie fit in perfectly."

In Moscow, in addition to "Iridescent," Linkin Park performed two dozen songs, mostly from their most recent album, 2010's "A Thousand Sins." Bay and "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf, who also showed up in Moscow for the premiere, were seen in the VIP area during the concert, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
