Bennington was found dead in his bedroom at his Palos Verdes Estates residence. He was 41-years-old and is survived by his wife of 11 years, Talinda Bentley, and their three children. The "In The End" singer also has three children from previous relationships.
Live Nation released a statement saying, "We are incredibly saddened to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. The Linkin Park One More Light North American Tour has been canceled and refunds are available at point of purchase. Our thoughts go out to all those affected."
After his passing, Linkin Park guitarist Mike Shinoda took to Twitter to express that he was "shocked and heartbroken."
On Monday morning, Linkin Park released a letter to Bennington.
An excerpt from the letter read: "We're trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place."
The One More Light tour was set to kick-off in Mansfield, Massachusetts on July 27th, and special guests would have included Machine Gun Kelly, One OK Rock, and Snoop Dogg, according to E! News.
Bennington was open about his struggles with substance abuse and depression in the past. In a 2015 interview with Rock Sound, Bennington spoke out about his dark days.
"I literally hated life and I was like, 'I don’t want to have feelings," he said. "I want to be a sociopath. I don’t want to do anything. I don’t want to care what other people feel like. I want to feel nothing.'"
