Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has announced his first official 2018 solo tour

Mike Shinoda has announced his first major North American solo trek. The tour will kick off Oct. 10 in Montreal and run through a Nov. 17 show in Silver Spring, Maryland. Tickets for the newly-announced dates will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday (Aug. 10) at 10 a.m. local venue time via MikeShinoda.com. The pre-sale is already going on.

Shinoda is touring in support of his newly-released solo album, “Post Traumatic.” He wrote the album as he was dealing with the tragic and sudden death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington last year.

“Listening to a recorded song is not the same as experiencing that song live on stage,” Shinoda said in a statement. “Similarly, seeing a painting in an album or book is not the same as seeing the original, in person. In sharing a live experience with you, my hope is to inspire questions, answers, and reflection — not only about my story, but about your own. The search for meaning is boundless, and art is often one of our best vehicles.”
