    The tour was supposed to take place in support of Linkin Park’s recent album One More Light, set to wrap on October 22 in Los Angeles. The group recently concluded a European tour, while their forthcoming dates also included a pair of co-headline shows with Blink 182. Those have also been canceled, according to a statement released by Blink-182 on Saturday.
