LINKIN PARK CANCELS REST OF TOUR; BENNINGTON UNABLE TO PERFORM
Linkin Park has now canceled all the remaining dates on the band’s current North American tour, which was slated to run through February 14th, following a leg injury to frontman Chester Bennington.
The group initially backed out of just two dates this week, in Pittsburgh and Albany, New York. With the entire trek now scrapped, Bennington said in a statement, “I’m really disappointed this injury has made it impossible to continue with this tour. The first couple of shows were just magical. We will truly miss not being with our fans for the next few weeks. Hope to see you again soon.”
The band did not divulge details of the injury, although it may have had something to do with Bennington’s ankle. He was said to require “immediate medical attention.”
Video surfaced online this week of the singer performing in Indianapolis a few days ago with his leg braced on a scooter.
The band’s next scheduled performance is on May 9th in Las Vegas as one of the headliners of the U.S edition of Rock In Rio.
