"Blink-182 is wrecked by the loss of our friend and fantastic musician Chester Bennington", the statement read. "It just would not be possible", the band declared in a statement. "Refunds will be available at the place of purchase".

In the wake of the tragedy, Linkin Park has canceled their North American tour and changed the band's logo to represent the void Bennington has left behind.

"I'll cherish every time we hung out or rocked a stage together", Barker tweeted, "Condolences & prayers to all".

In the letter, Bennington said he was "weeping with sadness" following the sudden death of Cornell.
