Linkin Park has officially cancelled its ‘One More Light’ North America tour.

The band made the decision just a day after front man Chester Bennington took his own life.

They were so devastated with the news that they could not think about the tour’s future as a result.

It was set to start next week before the tragedy struck.

Live Nation will be refunding fans of the band.

They released a statement: “We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. The Linkin Park One More Light North American Tour has been cancelled and refunds are available at point of purchase. Our thoughts go out to all those affected."
