Linkin Park announce 2011 North American tour

Linkin Park have announced dates for a 2011 North American tour, the band’s first in two years.

Kicking off January 20 in Sunrise, Florida (think connection to the album title), the trek is in support of their fourth #1 US album, “A Thousand Suns.”

Pendulum and Does It Offend You, Yeah? will open the first dozen or so shows, running into February, before The Prodigy play openers, starting mid-February in Houston.
