LINKIN PARK Announces 'One More Light' North American Tour With Special Guest MACHINE GUN KELLY

LINKIN PARK announced the "One More Light" world tour today via Genius, a first for both the genre-defying band and the lyric annotation platform.

Produced by Live Nation, the "One More Light" world tour, with special guest Machine Gun Kelly, kicks off July 27 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Xfinity Center.

In an effort to put tickets into the hands of real fans, first access to tickets for the "One More Light" world tour will be reserved exclusively for fans – not scalpers or bots. The LINKIN PARK presale — powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan — will utilize unique fan-first technology to level the playing field and ensure fans compete against other fans for tickets, not software. The more you participate, the higher your spot in line and the better your access to tickets. LINKIN PARK fan club (LPU) members will get priority, but anyone can work their way to the top.

Pre-sale begins May 9. Fans and LPU members can register for the tour pre-sale right now at presale.linkinpark.com. General on-sale is set for May 12.

LINKIN PARK will release its highly anticipated seventh studio album, "One More Light", on May 19 via Warner Bros. Records. The band's risky creative choices — swinging wildly from song to song, album to album — are a hallmark of their career, and "One More Light" is no exception. Their most personal to date, the album is built on the stories of six voices coming clean about their lives and struggles, as if it were the first time. "One More Light" isn’t bigger, louder, or more avant-garde — it's more human.

The "One More Light" world tour set list will combine the biggest hits of LINKIN PARK's expansive career, as well as material from the new album, with all the intense high energy and passion the band is known for.

"Our fans know how much love we put into our live show," says guitarist Brad Delson. "They know how much we enjoy the connection when we play a fan favorite on stage. The emotional and sonic content of this new batch of songs is going to bring a whole new dimension to the show."

Every single full-priced ticket purchased for the tour includes a choice of a standard CD or standard digital copy of the "One More Light" album (a $10.99 value).

Also joining the tour in Boston, Philadelphia and Uncasville, is one of Japan’s most popular and electrifying live rock bands, ONE OK ROCK.

$1.00 from every full priced ticket sold on the tour will benefit Music For Relief, the charity foundation LINKIN PARK founded in 2005 to aid survivors of natural disasters and environmental protection.
