Outbreak Presents and Live Nation announce that Mike Shinoda (of Linkin Park fame) is set to headline the latest installment of the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour which hits House of Blues Las Vegas on Oct. 30, 2018. This tour marks the first time Shinoda steps out on a full-scale North American solo tour.
Shinoda’s North American tour follows a string of headline shows and festival appearances across Asia and Europe, including Reading & Leeds (UK), Summer Sonic (Japan), and Rock en Seine (France).
In June, Mike Shinoda released his raw and inspiring solo album, Post Traumatic. 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, at each show, Shinoda will be showcasing the 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.”
Echoing Shinoda’s excitement, Monster Energy Outbreak Tour Founder Steve Glazer comments, “The Monster Energy Outbreak Tour is typically reserved for debut, emerging artists; and while Mike has obviously had a ton of success as a founding member of one of the biggest bands of all time, Mike Shinoda the solo artist is starting off completely fresh. We absolutely love his Post Traumatic material, and we’re excited to bring his first solo tour all across North America this fall.”
