After teasing their fans through a mysterious splash page on LinkinPark.com for the past several days and a subsequent leak; Linkin Park have today announced plans for a North American tour later this year with special guests 30 Seconds To Mars and AFI. [youtube]fEv3klEjKmg[/youtube] To be announced via a special live broadcast from Los Angeles today, the "CARNIVORES TOUR" is slated to kick off in August and will cover all of North America with a 25 date run. LPU Presales for the show will begin today at 3PM PST, and for the first time ever the band is offering a limited Premium Ticket Package that includes a meet and greet and a side stage experience at the show. Tickets for these special opportunities are very limited, and will go on sale to the general public at 5PM, with LPU members getting first dibs via the official presale. As always, the LPU Meet and Greet lottery will still happen (even without the purchase of the premium ticket). You can view more details on the Premium VIP Packages at Ticketmaster.
