Linkin Park announce North American tour

Linkin Park have announced dates for a North American tour in support of their forthcoming album, "One More Light."

The trek – with Machine Gun Kelly – will begin its opening leg at the Xfinity Center in Boston, MA on July 27, with shows running into early September before resuming in Seattle, WA on October 14.

Japanese rockers One OK Rock will join the tour for stops in Boston, Philadelphia, and Uncasville.

In an effort to reduce scalping and access via bots, a Linkin Park presale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan will utilize unique fan-first technology to level the playing field and ensure fans compete against other fans for tickets, not software. The more you participate, the higher your spot in line and the better your access to tickets. Linkin Park fan club (LPU) members will get priority, but anyone can work their way to the top.

Pre-sale begins May 9; fans and LPU members can register for the tour pre-sale now at presale.linkinpark.com. General public tickets will be available May 12.

Every single full-priced ticket purchased for the tour includes a choice of a standard CD or standard digital copy of the "One More Light" album.

$1.00 from every full priced ticket sold on the tour will benefit Music For Relief, the charity foundation Linkin Park founded in 2005 to aid survivors of natural disasters and environmental protection.

Due May 19, “One More Light” has been previewed with the lead single, “Heavy” ft. Kiiara, “Battle Symphony” and “Good Goodbye” featuring Pusha T and Stormzy.

"Our fans know how much love we put into our live show," says guitarist Brad Delson. "They know how much we enjoy the connection when we play a fan favorite on stage. The emotional and sonic content of this new batch of songs is going to bring a whole new dimension to the show."
