Linkin Park to Return to North America with Solo 2015 Arena Tour

November 03, 2014 by Alyssa

The Hunting Party Tour

This past summer, Linkin Park shared its tour bill with co-headliner 30 Seconds to Mars, but in 2015 the powerful rock outfit will take a solo approach to promoting its sixth studio album. Announced on Nov. 3, Linkin Park’s The Hunting Party Tour is slated to begin a North American leg in mid-January, finally giving fans the chance to see a more in-depth live performance of the band’s most recent musical output.

A total of 19 cities were featured on the initial Linkin Park tour announcement, and the band seems to be placing its focus on sites that were skipped on the recent Carnivores Tour. In the press release, lead vocalist Chester Bennington gave an explanation of Linkin Park’s desire to stop in these cities, stating, “…for some reason these places tend to get overlooked much more than they should. We want our fans there to know how much they matter to us.”

Among those oft-overlooked cities is Albany, N.Y. (Jan. 21), Hershey, Pa. (Jan. 27), Hamilton, Ontario (Feb. 3), and Des Moines, Iowa (Feb. 6). A handful of major venues will also feature into the Linkin Park tour 2015, including New York’s Barclays Center, a venue the band will headline for the first time on Jan. 25.

Opening acts for the upcoming trek will include Chicago-based hardcore outfit Rise Against and California metalcore group Of Mice and Men. Rise Against released a new album, The Black Market, in July, while Of Mice and Men dropped its third studio album, Restoring Force, in January.

Released on June 13, Linkin Park’s The Hunting Party marks the sixth full-length entry in the band’s formidable discography, and it has already resulted in two chart-topping singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart. The album’s second single, “Until It’s Gone,” became Linkin Park’s eighth No. 1 on the chart in September.
