We find that the interference of two open orbits modeled by two noncollinear cylindrical Fermi surfaces leads to a linear magnetoresistance. The interference occurs only when the magnetic field is slightly tilted from the perpendicular to the plane defined by the cylinders' axes. There exist experimental data which reveal a linear magnetoresistance. Some may possibly be explained by the interference effect.
