Blink-182 have announced that their Welcome to Blinkin Park co-headlining tour with Linkin Park has been cancelled due to the passing of Chester Bennington.

"Blink-182 is wrecked by the loss of our friend and amazing musician Chester Bennington. We could never imagine playing 'Blinkin Park' without his incredible talent and voice. It just would not be possible," the band said in a statement.

"We send our deepest sympathies to his family, bandmates, friends and fans. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase."

The Welcome to Blinkin Park mini-tour was set to begin on July 28 at Flushing, New York, according to Rolling Stone.

Linkin Park's One More Light World Tour was also cancelled following the death of the band's 41-year old lead singer last Thursday.

On Twitter, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker paid tribute to Bennington, whose death coincided with the birthday of his deceased friend Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.

"Absolutely heartbroken. I'll cherish every time we hung out or rocked a stage together. Condolences & prayers to all. So sad," Barker wrote.
