Monday, 08 May 2017
Snoop Dogg will join LINKIN PARK on their "One More Light" world tour as a special guest on six West Coast dates in October. The rap legend and rock outliers will share the stage for six consecutive shows beginning October 14 in Seattle and concluding October 22 at the historic Hollywood Bowl. LINKIN PARK with special guest Snoop Dogg: Oct. 14 - Seattle, WA @KeyArena Oct. 15 - Vancouver, BC @ Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena Oct. 17 - Fresno, CA @ Save Mart Center at Fresno State Oct. 18 - San Jose, CA @ SAP Center at San Jose Oct. 20 - San Diego, CA @ Mattress Firm Amphitheatre Oct. 22 - Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Bowl Last week, LINKIN PARK announced a North American tour in support of the band's seventh album, "One More Light", with the trek kicking off on July 27 in Boston and extending into the fall, winding down on October 22 in Los Angeles. To combat scalpers, the band is offering fans first access to tickets through a unique new technology that will help weed out bots and ticket-buying software. LINKIN PARK unveiled the details of the tour through lyric annotation platform Genius. Support will come from MACHINE GUN KELLY and, on selected dates, Japanese rock act ONE OK ROCK. Every single full-priced ticket purchased for the tour includes a choice of a standard CD or standard digital copy of the new album. "One More Light" arrives on May 19. LINKIN PARK has already been criticized for the album's major shift toward a pop sound on songs like "Heavy" and "Good Goodbye". Singer Mike Shinoda spoke a while back about using technology to recreate the band's heavily produced studio sound in a live setting. "Although there is the technology in the setup of what we've got going on onstage — and I feel like it's very high-tech for a music set-up — we also feel like we have a great deal of responsibility to be a live band," he said. "So, you know, whereas we have the opportunity to put certain things in the computer or on a sampler and whatever, we're very careful about what we do put in the computer because we want to be playing everything, we want the crowd to see us performing the song." Snoop Dogg's new album, "Neva Left", will be available on May 19. Photo credit: James Minchin
