MTV AND VH1 TO BROADCAST LINKIN PARK'S SPECIAL PERFORMANCE OF "IRIDESCENT" IN SUPPORT OF "TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON" FROM MOSCOW ACROSS ITS SCREENS ON FRIDAY, JUNE 24

NEW YORK, NY (June 22, 2011) - In celebration of Paramount Pictures' TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON, MTV and VH1 will broadcast a special performance of Linkin Park's new single, "Iridescent," across its screens on Friday, June 24th. Performed at a special outdoor concert at Vasilyevsky Spusk of the Red Square in Moscow - with the Kremlin and St. Basil's Basilica as the backdrop, the performance will be featured on MTV, MTV2, mtvU, VH1 Classic and Palladia at 8:55pm ET/PT. In addition, VH1 will feature the performance later that night at 11:30pm ET/PT.

Linkin Park's performance of their new single, "Iridescent," which is the end title song in the upcoming third Transformers film, is taking place the same night the 3D Michael Bay film will open at the Moscow International Film Festival. The movie opens worldwide beginning June 29th. Stars from the film are scheduled to attend, along with director Michael Bay.

One of the most successful collaborations between music and film, the previous Linkin Park singles to appear in the first two Transformers films, "What I've Done" from the first Transformers film, has sold over 4 million downloads worldwide, and "New Divide" from 2009's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, crossed the 3 million mark. Both songs were top selling singles for the band, and went to #1 on the modern rock radio charts (with "New Divide" spending 14 weeks there).

TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON is the third film in the Transformers franchise and the first shot in 3D. It is directed by Michael Bay, written by Ehren Kruger and produced by Don Murphy & Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Ian Bryce. The executive producers are Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. The movie opens in the United States on June 29, 2011. (C)2011 Paramount Pictures Corporation.
