Linkin Park cancels tour after lead singer injures leg
NEW YORK (AP) — Linkin Park is canceling the rest of its U.S. tour after its lead singer injured his leg.
Chester Bennington says in a statement Tuesday that he needs immediate medical attention and that it is impossible for him to perform. Bennington did not say how he injured his leg.
Linkin Park’s “The Hunting Party” tour kicked off last week and the rock band only performed three concerts. Bennington appeared onstage with crutches at the band’s Sunday concert in Indianapolis.
Bennington says he is “disappointed” that he cannot perform and called the first few shows “magical.”
The statement says fans can seek refunds for the remaining 16 shows at point of purchase.
The band’s Grammy-winning hits include “In the End,” ″Numb” and “New Divide”
