California rock outfit Linkin Park will embark on its first-ever headlining tour Jan. 26 in Seattle. The month-lonh trek comes in support of the group's Warner Bros. debut album "Hybrid Theory," which jumped 39-20 on The Billboard 200 last week and has spawned the single "One Step Closer," which is top-5 on both Billboard's Mainstream and Modern Rock Tracks chart. The set has already sold more than 1 million copies in the U.S., according to SoundScan. Modern rock act Taproot, itself supporting its Atlantic debut album "Gift," will open.
