"We are working each day to grieve, heal and work towards stepping on stage together without our dear friend."
Linkin Park have officially cancelled their upcoming Japanese tour.
The shows were scheduled to take place in November and they were set to be supported by ONE OK ROCK.
The band have posted the following message on their website...
"We have been looking forward to being with all of you, but unfortunately cannot play our previously scheduled performances in Tokyo.
"Until now, we have not communicated about our November shows because we sincerely wished to play, even in the wake of Chester's passing.
"We are working each day to grieve, heal, and work towards stepping on stage together without our dear friend. We are so grateful for your love and support.
"Our sincere appreciation for your kind understanding."
