Linkin Park Back on Tour
Hard rockers, Linkin Park, are back on the road after frontman Chester Bennington recovered from an illness. He was hospitalised recently due to a viral infection and complications from the treatment.
Going back a week, on Thursday 10 February, the rockers were forced to cancel a show in Washington, D.C. after the frontman was directed by doctors to take a break and rest to recover from a viral infection. This then forced re-scheduling shows in Connecticut and in Ohio. Bennington thanked his fans for their thoughts and understanding as he made his recovery.
On the Linkin Park website, a message was posted saying, "Hi guys, I wanted to write you a note and let you know that unfortunately we have to cancel our 3rd show in a row. As much as I'd love to be on stage rocking out for you, I'm under doctor's orders to rest. I really appreciate all the notes and kind words you've sent my way. Our fans really are the best fans in the world... Chester."
All ticket-holders of cancelled shows were given refunds, and the band is also intending to give fans a free audio download of concerts on their 'A Thousand Suns' tour.
Now they are back on the road. In a prepared statement, the recovering Bennington said, "I'd like to thank our fans for all the kind wishes I've received. I'm looking forward to being back on stage, which is a lot more fun than being in a hospital. I also want to apologize to our fans in the cities affected by the cancelations and postponements, and let them know we'll be back as soon as we can. "
Their first concert was on Saturday 19 February in Los Angeles, where they were joined on stage with Britain's The Prodigy.
Their current album "A Thousand Suns" was only released last year, but before the album was available, they released the first single 'The Catalyst'. The pre-released single has been a big success.
