Linkin Park Are Reportedly Booking A 2025 Reunion Tour


While rumors of Linkin Park planning a retooled reunion tour of sorts had been circulating among the industry for several months, it wasn’t until Orgy vocalist Jay Gordon let slip that he had heard the band were reportedly planning to tour with a new female singer several weeks ago that the public got wind of the possible future of the diamond-certified nü-metal/alternative rock outfit.

Gordon would go on to walk back his comments, claiming to have been misquoted. However, Billboard are now reporting that a potential 2025 reunion tour from Linkin Park appears to be in the works. What’s more, that venture may indeed materialize with an as-yet unidentified female singer in place of the band’s beloved late vocalist Chester Bennington.

According to the aforementioned publication, booking agency WME has been taking offers for a possible 2025 reunion tour from the band, that will likely include festival appearances. The publication also cite sources claiming that vocalist/guitarist, etc. Mike Shinoda, guitarist/vocalist, etc. Brad Delson and bassist/vocalist Dave Farrell are among the members involved in this endeavor.

Industry rumors emerged several months ago that a Shinoda-led incarnation of the band had been fielding offers to play some of this spring’s rock big rock festivals, though those plans never came to pass.

This timing of the band’s apparent return follows a resurgence on the Billboard charts that has been propelled by the release of their greatest hits collection “Papercuts“, which landed on April 12th.

Should Linkin Park follow through on this rumored return, you can rule out at least one fellow diamond-certified female vocalist who came up during the nü-metal era. Evanescence‘s Amy Lee has denied being involved with the alleged reunion, though admitted she’d be open to fronting the outfit as a part-time gig.

The surviving members of Linkin Park‘s classic era last took to the stage as a unit back on October 27th of 2017, performing as part of a tribute concert to the 41-year-old Bennington, who had taken his own life in July of that year.
