Rock Band Linkin Park suffered a massive loss when its lead singer Chester Bennington committed suicide this Thursday. The band members of LP canceled their upcoming tour in the wake of the singer’s untimely death. Members of the band Bourdon, Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda, Dave Farrell and Joe Hahn are yet to make any official statement as the co-founder Mike says they are too heartbroken to say anything right now.
"We are Incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. The Linkin Park 'One More Light North America Tour' has been cancelled and the refunds are available at point of purchase. Our thoughts go out to all those affected," read the statement released by the promoters of Live Nation, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Chester was battling depression post his close friend Chris Cornell’s death in May this year. He was tragically found dead at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estate on Thursday where he is believed to have ended his own life. His death date coincidentally coincides with Chris Cornell’s birthday. Bennington was 41 year old at the time of his death.
The twice married Chester, who has left behind three children, was due to head out with his band 'One More Light North America Tour' next week. Founded in 1996, Linkin Park made seven albums and their latest release, "One more light" debuted at No.1 on the Billboard album chart.
