Linkin Park have announced that they'll be going on tour in North America. Which is perfect timing, because the alt-rap-rock band have a new album that we need to hear live.
One More Light, the band's seventh album, is expected out May 19. Linkin Park will kick off their One More Light Tour a few months later on July 27. The whole trek starts in Boston and will wind across the continent until wrapping up in October at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Additional concerts in Pennsylvania and New York will be announced soon.
And guess who's coming out on the road? Fellow alt-scene kid Machine Gun Kelly, who will be giving the tour a little hip-hop kick. Japanese rock outfit One OK Rock will be supporting Linkin Park on select dates, and a West Coast opener will be announced at a later time.
Tickets for this tour go on sale May 12 at 10 a.m. on Live Nation.com. Linkin Park fans will have access to a pre-sale starting May 9 through Ticketmaster's Verified Fan program. Sign up for that here. When you get a ticket, you also get a CD or digital copy of One More Light. Sounds like a deal.
