As was expected, Linkin Park have officially canceled their "One More Light" North American tour in the wake of the death of vocalist Chester Bennington. The band has yet to release an official statement regarding the loss of Bennington, but their social media accounts have shared a statement issued by promoter Live Nation about the tour.
"We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. The Linkin Park 'One More Light' North American Tour has been cancelled and refunds are available at point of purchase. Our thoughts go out to all those affected," reads the statement from Live Nation.
