Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda announced his first solo show following Chester Bennington’s death last July. He’ll be playing this year’s Japan’s Summer Sonic festival, held August 18-19. Last week, Shinoda released a three-song EP titled Post Traumatic, which dealt with his grief over Bennignton’s death. Shinoda last performed alongside the rest of Linkin Park during their memorial show for Bennington last October. He recently tweeted that he has “every intention of continuing” with Linkin Park. Along with Shinoda, the Summer Sonic lineup features Nine Inch Nails, Beck and Queens of the Stone Age, among many more. Head to SummerSonic.com for more info.
