Linkin Park has set dates for a pair of upcoming tours: the LP Underground tour, a March outing specifically for members of the group's fan club; and the Projekt Revolution 2003 tour, a package trek in April featuring Xzibit, Mudvayne, and Blindside.

The LP Underground tour, named after the group's fan club, is tailored to members of that organization. Card holders not only get first crack at tickets for the tour (via the club's official Web site), but admission to the shows is free to current LP Underground members, who will also have the chance to meet the band after each performance.

Tickets will be opened up to the public Tuesday (March 4). The tour, with support act Blindside, will start March 11 in Worcester, Mass., and cover 10 dates through a March 25 gig at Los Angeles' Wiltern Theatre. As previously reported, Linkin Park's new Warner Bros. album, "Meteora," will be released the same day.

The LP Underground jaunt only marks the beginning of Linkin Park's touring in support of "Meteora." The band has announced the cities and dates for its second annual Projekt Revolution tour, with venues to be finalized in the coming weeks. Check Linkin Park's official Web site for more information.

As previously reported, the group will then join Metallica and Limp Bizkit on the Summer Sanitarium tour, which kicks off July 4 in Pontiac, Mich.
