Korean rock band CNBLUE have been chosen as the opening act to Linkin Park's upcoming concert in Japan, according to the official website of Linkin Park and CNBLUE's official Japanese website.

The respective websites revealed on Wednesday that CNBLUE will warm up the crowd before Linkin Park takes the stage at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan on September 10 as part of their nationwide tour titled "A THOUSAND SUNS JAPAN TOUR 2011".

In the meantime, Linkin Park will perform in Korea two days before their show in Japan at the Olympic Park Stadium in Seoul to promote their fourth album "A Thousand Suns".

Linkin Park, first formed in 1996, rose to fame with so-called 'hybrid rock' which combined punk, rock hip-hop and other genres of music into their work.

Their first album "Hybrid Theory" released in 2000 was a phenomenal success that sold over 50 million copies around the world with one of its singles "Crawling" fetching them a Grammy Award for best hard rock performance in 2002.

They have since released a number of other hit songs such as "Somewhere I Belong", "Faint" and "Numb/Encore".

CNBLUE, composed of members Jeong Yong-hwa, Kang Min-hyuk, Lee Jung-shin and Lee Jong-hyun, made their debut as an Indie rock band in Japan before breaking into the K-pop scene last year.

The boys are currently gearing up for their concert in Korea titled "BLUESTORM" which will take place at Seoul's Olympic Hall on September 17 and 18 and their mainstream debut in Japan on October 19.
