Linkin Park Announce Summer 2017 North American Dates With Machine Gun Kelly
Linkin Park have been rolling out new music and have a May 19 release date for their One More Light album. So the next logical step is to reveal a tour to support the new album and we've now got dates and details to discuss.
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.
In an effort to cut down on scalping and ticket bots, the band has offered first access for the "One More Light" World Tour to fans in a special Linkin Park pre-sale powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan. The more you participate in the program, the better your spot will be in line and the better your access to tickets. Linkin Park Underground fan club members will still get priority, but anyone can work their way to the top. The pre-sale begins May 9 and both fans and LPU members can register for the tour pre-sale at this location. Meanwhile, the general public on-sale date is set for May 12.
By the time Linkin Park hit the road, their One More Light album will have been out for just over two months, which should give fans a chance to get familiar with the new material being worked into sets. “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.”
All single full-priced tickets purchased for the tour will include a choice of a standard CD or standard digital copy of the One More Light album. In addition, one dollar from every full priced ticket sold will benefit Linkin Park's Music for Relief charitable organization. See dates for the tour below.
