Linkin Park have officially cancelled their planned Japanese tour. The cancellation comes as the band continue to mourn the tragic death of Chester Bennington.
Linkin Park said the following:
“To our wonderful fans in Japan and our brothers in ONE OK ROCK:
We have been looking forward to being with all of you, but unfortunately cannot play our previously scheduled performances in Tokyo. Until now, we have not communicated about our November shows because we sincerely wished to play, even in the wake of Chester‘s passing.
We are working each day to grieve, heal, and work towards stepping on stage together without our dear friend. We are so grateful for your love and support. Our sincere appreciation for your kind understanding.
– LINKIN PARK“
The band will return to the stage on October 27 at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA to honor Bennington with a special tribute show.
