Former co-lead vocalist of Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda, has announced a solo headlining tour across North America this fall as part of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, August 10th at 10am local time at mikeshinoda.com and outbrea
In June, Shinoda released his raw and inspiring solo album, Post Traumatic via Warner Bros. Records. The album received widespread critical acclaim and garnered a slew of positive reviews and profiles in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Complex, Time, Pitchfork, Forbes, GQ, People, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, LA Times, Spin, Noisey, Genius, and more. The album features genre-melding singles “Crossing a Line” and “Make It Up As I Go” feat. K.Flay, along with a host of eclectic cameos from Blackbear, Machine Gun Kelly, Chino Moreno, and grandson.
As a special treat for fans, Shinoda will also be exhibiting art pieces he created while writing and recording Post Traumatic. “Listening to a recorded song is not the same as experiencing that song live on stage,” says Shinoda. “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.”
