Chester Bennington Sick, Linkin Park Cancel Upcoming Shows
Linkin Park are forced to scrap a series of charity concerts in Asia due to Chester Bennington's back injury.


Linkin Park decide to call off their live performance in Asia because Chester Bennington is suffering from back injury. "Linkin Park has been forced to cancel their upcoming Music For Relief Concerts in Mainland China, Macau and Taipei as lead vocalist Chester Bennington has sustained a back injury and is under doctor's orders to refrain from traveling or any physical activities," the band issue a statement on their official website.

The scheduled shows were supposed to be fund-raising concerts to help those affected by the earthquake that struck the Chinese province of Sichuan in last May. Regardless the scrapped shows, the band and the concert promoters have made a donation to compensate for the loss of money that should have been raised through ticket sales of the concert. "Thanks to generous donations from concert promoter Emma Ticketmaster and Linkin Park, funds will still be contributed to the band's nonprofit organization, Music for Relief, and matched by the World Bank," the band state.

Meanwhile, for the fans who have bought the tickets for the shows, the band promise a refund. "Linkin Park sincerely regrets this unavoidable cancellation and apologizes to fans for any disappointment caused. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase," they say.

Linkin Park's canceled shows:

  • October 12 - Shanghai Stadium in Shanghai, China
  • October 15 - Xinhua Stadium in Wuhan, China
  • October 17 - Taipei Soccer Stadium in Taipei, Taiwan
  • October 19 - Beijing Workers Stadium in Beijing, China
  • October 21 - The Venetian in Macau, China Cotai Arena
