Linkin Park cancel One More Light tour in wake of Chester Bennington's tragic suicide
Linkin Park have reportedly cancelled their north American tour in the wake of Chester Bennington ‘s tragic suicide.
“We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington,” Live Nation said in a statement. “Refunds are available at point of purchase. Our thoughts go out to all those affected.”
A representative for the band added to TMZ that they were so devastated they couldn’t think about the tour’s future.
The frontman committed suicide just a week before the band was due to embark on the North American leg of tour on July 27 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
It comes after the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said Chester died by hanging himself at his southern California home, but left no note.
The frontman, 41, was found dead on Thursday at his home in Palos Verdes, near Los Angeles.
“He was found hanging in his bedroom. No note was found,” coroner’s spokesman Ed Winter said.
Winter added that there was an open bottle of alcohol in the bedroom but no drugs had been found.
Chester had a history of alcohol and drug abuse and had spoken openly in the past about his struggles to overcome his demons when Linkin Park first found fame in 2000 with their best-selling debut album Hybrid Theory.
Winter said an autopsy was pending, and that toxicology tests were also likely to be carried out.
Mirror Celebs has contacted representatives for Linkin Park for comment.
