This summer’s Carnivores Tour will feature Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars and AFI

Linkin Park took a break from touring last year to start recording new music, and recently, multi-instrumentalist Mike Shinoda hinted that the band’s follow-up to 2012’s “Living Things” will drop at some point this summer. Now, Linkin Park have announced a blockbuster summer tour, likely in support of the upcoming album, and they’re bringing some big acts along for the ride.

Linkin Park will co-headline the Carnivores Tour this summer with fellow alternative rock act 30 Seconds to Mars. California’s AFI will open for all of the shows.

The 25-date tour is schedule to set off Aug. 8 in West Palm Beach, Fla., and wrap up Sept. 19 in Concord, Calif. Tickets for the dates will go on sale this Friday (March 7) via LiveNation.

30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto has taken some time off from the band as of late to focus on acting. Most recently, he made headlines when he picked up an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Meanwhile, AFI have kept busy on the road for the past year and are currently touring in support of their 2013 studio album, “Burials.”
