The band announced their tour earlier today via Genius in the video seen above. As you can see, Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda interrupt a Machine Gun Kelly interview to ask the musician if he wanted to go on tour. With a simple yes, they exit and get ready for this summer’s run, which is set to kick off July 27 in Boston at the XFinity Center. One OK Rock will also support on select dates.
LINKIN PARK will release its highly anticipated seventh studio album, "One More Light", on May 19 via Warner Bros. Records. The band's risky creative choices — swinging wildly from song to song, album to album — are a hallmark of their career, and "One More Light" is no exception. Their most personal to date, the album is built on the stories of six voices coming clean about their lives and struggles, as if it were the first time. "One More Light" isn’t bigger, louder, or more avant-garde — it's more human.
The band initially announced the tour last week, when they told fans they could register for the Linkin Park Presale. Powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan, the Presale gives fans first access to tickets in an effort to combat ticket scalpers. By registering for the Presale, fans can participate in a contest to meet the band.
