Linkin Park cancels tour after Bennington’s death
    2017-July-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

LINKIN Park has canceled the rest of its One More Light North American tour.

The news comes a day after frontman Chester Bennington was found dead at the age of 41 in Los Angeles.

“We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. The Linkin Park One More Light North American Tour has been canceled and refunds are available at point of purchase. Our thoughts go out to all those affected,” said Live Nation in a statement.

On Friday, it was revealed that the singer’s death was reported as a suicide by hanging. The final cause of death is pending following an autopsy. ET learned that there was no evidence of drugs at the scene, but there was a partially emptied bottle of alcohol in the room where his body was found.

Linkin Park members Mike Shinoda and Dave Farrell also took to Twitter on Thursday to express their sadness.

Bennington, whose screeching vocals helped the rock-rap band become one of the most commercially successful acts in the 2000s, was found dead in his home near Los Angeles on Thursday, the Los Angeles County coroner said.

The Grammy Award-winning group sold more than 10 million copies of their 2000 debut, “Hybrid Theory,” which featured the megahit and anthem, “In the End.” They sold another 6 million with 2003’s multiplatinum “Meteora.” Both albums explored feelings of frustration and fury.

The success helped Linkin Park become Billboard’s No. 1 act of the decade for rock songs and alternative songs.

Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. He said he had been sexually abused as a child and was homeless for months before the band found fame.

Bennington was close friends with Chris Cornell, who died by hanging earlier this year, and performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at the Soundgarden singer’s memorial in late May. Cornell’s 53rd birthday would have been Thursday.
