Linkin Park cancels tour following lead singer's death

Chester Bennington ended his life earlier this week.

Following the death of lead vocalist, Chester Bennington, Linkin Park has canceled its upcoming tour.

It was set to start in just a week in support of their most recent album, One More Light.

The band was slated to perform at the Xcel on August 15 with Machine Gun Kelly

Linkin Park has yet to issue an official statement on its website or Facebook page; however, it shared Live Nation's post explaining that refunds will be available to people who bought tickets. 

Rolling Stone says the band had scheduled some performances with Blink-182, called the Welcome to Blinkin Park tour.

Saturday, Blink-182 posted that tour had been canceled as well. 

A few months ago, the two bands came together for a funny first date video. You can watch that here.


The annual rate of suicide has been trending upward, according to the Minnesota Department of Health. That increase was driven by the number of men who took their own life, with the health department noting half of the increase in suicides happened among white men ages 25-34.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
