Linkin Park has officially issued a statement cancelling their upcoming Japanese shows with One OK Rock in the light of vocalist Chester Bennington‘s passing. You can check out that statement below.
“To our wonderful fans in Japan and our brothers in ONE OK ROCK:
We have been looking forward to being with all of you, but unfortunately cannot play our previously scheduled performances in Tokyo. Until now, we have not communicated about our November shows because we sincerely wished to play, even in the wake of Chester‘s passing.
We are working each day to grieve, heal, and work towards stepping on stage together without our dear friend. We are so grateful for your love and support. Our sincere appreciation for your kind understanding.
– LINKIN PARK“
