Linkin Park are coming to the UK this summer, with three arena dates set for July.

London, Manchester and Birmingham are the cities to feature on the itinerary for a brief run of shows in the country.

Their seventh studio album, One More Light, is released in May and the tour is sure to feature material from that plus their classic hits.

The O2 in London will be the first stop, on Monday 3 July, followed by performances at the Barclaycard Arena on the 5th and Manchester Arena on the 7th.

Tickets go on sale next week, on Friday 7 April, from 9am at www.livenation.co.uk.

Linkin Park aren’t set to perform at any UK festivals this year, but will be nearby at events including Belgium’s Rock Werchter and France’s Hellfest.

Their latest single is Heavy, featuring US singer-songwriter Kiiara and a long way from the nu-metal and rap rock of the early 2000s.

Linkin Park’s first album, Hybrid Theory, turns 17 this October.
