LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — American musician, singer, songwriter and producer Mike Shinoda announced he’s partnering with energy drink maker Monster to headline the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour.
“Listening to a recorded song is not the same as experiencing that song live on stage. Similarly, seeing a painting in an album or book is not the same as seeing the original, in person,” Shinoda says in a press release. “In sharing a live experience with you, my hope is to inspire questions, answers, answers, and reflections – only about my story, but about your own. The search for meaning is boundless, and art is often one of our best vehicles.”
Shinoda, who is one of the founding members of the band Linkin Park, is touring in support of his latest solo EP, “Post Traumatic” which he released in June via Warner. The tour is scheduled to kick off in Mid-October at Rebel in Toronto and wrap up in Mid November at the Fillmore in Silver Spring.
The Outbreak tours, which first launched in 2011, matches performers that fits into the Monster energy milieu with fan-friendly ticket prices at premium venues. It’s the largest national touring brand in the club & theater space and currently consists of five annual music tours (Hip Hop, EDM, Rock, Country, College), one annual comedy tour, and the Outbreak House at SXSW.
Previous artists to be featured on one of the Outbreak tours include Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, The Chainsmokers, Carnage, Bullet For My Valentine, Cole Swindell, Garfunkel & Oates, Andrew Dice Clay and Fetty Wap, among others.
