The “One More Light World Tour” was slated to begin on July 27, where the brand would tour across North America and Japan. It was in support of Linkin Park’s latest album, One More Light, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — their sixth No. 1 album.
However, as most already know, lead singer Chester Bennington committed suicide this week at his home in Los Angeles. He was just 41 years old.
The band’s last show with Bennington was on July 6 in Birmingham, England.
