Rockers Linkin Park thrilled fans during their headlining set at Britain's Download Festival this weekend (14-15Jun14) by playing their debut album Hybrid Theory in full for the first time.

The bandmembers took to the stage at Donington Park, England to close out Saturday night's (14Jun14) performances and delighted devotees by revealing they would work through the entire tracklisting of their first ever record, including hits Papercut, One Step Closer and In the End.

Singer Mike Shinoda then admitted the show would be a rare exception, saying, "This is a special night for us, we've never done this before."

The second half of the show featured more recent tracks, including three songs from the band's new album The Hunting Party.

Other performers at the three-day festival on Saturday (14Jun14) included Fall Out Boy, Status Quo and Twisted Sister. Acts headling Sunday's (15Jun14) line-up include Aerosmith, Alter Bridge and The Pretty Reckless.
