Hollywood Palladium | Los Angeles, California
Linkin Park founder and vocalist Mike Shinoda brings his debut solo tour, Post-Traumatic, to Hollywood Palladium on Friday 2nd November 2018! Shinoda's emotive new record deals with the death of his best friend and band-mate Chester Bennington in 2017. On the topic of the new album, Shinoda says:
“I wanted fans to hear from me in real time. If I felt a certain way on a certain day, I wanted to communicate that soon so that we we were kind of on the same page. That ended up being important for me. I put out the first three songs in January, and then basically put out a track every month or so after that until the album came out because I knew that it would effectively catch the fans up with how I’m doing – in a way that most importantly allowed them to realise that I’m not in the same place that I was say 10 or 11 months ago.”
