Linkin Park has announced their One More Light World Tour 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 27th in Boston, MA at the Xfinity Center. See itinerary below.
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 9th by registering. General on-sale is set for May 12th.
Linkin Park will release their highly anticipated seventh studio album, One More Light, May 19th 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.The album 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’s Park 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.”
Each full priced ticket purchased for the tour includes a choice of a standard CD or standard digital copy of the One More Light album.
Special guest on the tour is EST 19XX / Bad Boy / Interscope recording artist, Machine Gun Kelly. He is set to release his third studio album, Bloom, the same day tickets go on sale for the tour – Friday May 12th. The inspiring debut single, “At My Best” featuring Hailee Steinfeld, was the number one most added song at Rhythmic radio, and has received 20.3+ Spotify streams to date. His “Bad Things” single earned Machine Gun Kelly his first #1 song on Pop Radio as well as peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The One More Light World Tour won’t be the first time Linkin Park and Machine Gun Kelly shared the stage. In 2014, Machine Gun Kelly joined LP for a rendition of “Bleed It Out” on the band’s surprise appearance at the Van’s Warped Tour.
Also joining the tour in Boston, Philadelphia and Uncasville, is one of Japan’s most popular and electrifying live rock bands, ONE OK ROCK.
One dollar 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.
