The tour was scheduled to run from Thursday through 22 October, including two "Blinkin Park" co-headlining dates with Blink-182 at New York's Citi Field and Hersheypark in Pennsylvania.

It was unclear whether Blink-182 will press ahead with the dates, reported Variety.

"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," a statement from tour promoter Live Nation read.

On Friday afternoon, the Los Angeles County coroner confirmed additional details about Bennington's death. The 41-year-old singer's body was found on Thursday at his home in a suburb of LA.

Bennington had struggled with depression and substance abuse throughout his life. He also appeared to be deeply impacted by the loss of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, who died in May and was good friends with Bennington. The Linkin Park frontman died on what would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday.
