show cancelled

October 5, 2008

Los Angeles, CA (October 6, 2008) – Linkin Park has been forced to cancel tonight’s concert at the The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, as lead vocalist Chester Bennington has sustained a back injury and is under doctor’s orders to rest. Linkin Park sincerely regrets this unavoidable cancellation and apologizes to fans for any disappointment caused.

We’re bummed…Chester hurt his back, and is in quite a bit of pain. Please think good thoughts for our friend πŸ™‚

    Oh, worry about Chaz’s injury, so many times told him should take care,
    hope him recover faster .I and friends are upset.

    Although we have booked the travel tickets and concert tickets for China tour.

  12. MiileLP on October 8, 2008 at 10:09 am

    I hope it looks good as soon as possible. I swear, I joined when I was in despair knowing! Improvements to Chazy:). I am sorry for bad english. .. with love: *

  14. soyuneik on October 8, 2008 at 1:22 am

    Holy freaking crap. I think I just had a small heart attack-you camped for how long? If there is such a thing as bad luck, I think it would be safe to say Chester has it. If I had magical voodoo powers I’d take this moment to cast some good luck on him. Ah well, I hope he gets well soon.

  15. linkingabo on October 7, 2008 at 11:03 pm

  16. JamieLan on October 7, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Dear Mike,
    I’m a fan from Taiwan named Jamie Lan. My friends and I have been camping at the soccer stadium since 9/5. no kidding. It’s totally a shock for all the fans in Taiwan to know that Chester hurt his back and the show’s been canceled. We’ve been waiting for more than a month there, but all the time we’ve spent doesn’t matter. We really hope Chester’s getting better soon. I’ll pray for him. We love you all and we’ll be waiting for your next coming!!! Best luck!!!

  17. Sophia on October 7, 2008 at 6:18 pm

    it’s really sad that chaz hurt back, hope he can get well soon.

    and it’s also sad the ASIA tour all cancelled. im waiting this time so long

    i cant believe it ……….


  18. shamrock on October 7, 2008 at 6:11 pm

    Wow, just read about the cancellation of the Asian Tour. That’s rough. Sure hope Chester bounces back soon. The rest of you guys take care now, y’hear? BTW, Mike, love the random comments. Whether you post them in ALL CAPS, no caps, or HaLf AnD hAlF doesn’t matter, just keep posting! The things you share always make me laugh, or think, or even learn something new. Keep ’em coming! πŸ˜‰

  19. Mireya on October 7, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    are you guys rescheduling?

  20. FCastro on October 7, 2008 at 10:54 am

  23. Evabones on October 7, 2008 at 6:48 am

    Chester, you must reist!!!!! You’re a fucking, hard man =) ! I am sure that you will resume yourself soon. All the fun are with you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. NeneLP88 on October 7, 2008 at 5:28 am

    Oh poor Chester! Γ§__Γ§

    He’s always ill (arm-wrist-hole in his face-back) =(

    He had suggested he should use helmet and pads once.. They didn’t work? xD

    I wish it’s not such a serious stuff and it doesn’t hurt a lot.

    All our best wishes are with him!! ❀

  25. sasummsumm on October 7, 2008 at 4:25 am

    oh poor chester…hope he gets well soon…what has he done with his back? …did he try to lift something heavy? …cmon you got band members to help you πŸ˜„ hrhr…watch your back…i know back problems from my father…it’s not very funny…

  26. Jon on October 7, 2008 at 1:18 am

    I totally misread this and thought you’d written something about bumming Chester… Gawd I’m traumatised. Hope he gets better quickly and you guys are back out and about playing and not doing anything sexual with one another.

    At all.
    P.s. good look on using capitals. Bec’s mentioned that since she was like… well 2003, she’s now 2008 years old and its reflected as a good birthday present from you.

  27. TEQUILA on October 6, 2008 at 11:01 pm

    hope chester gets better…how’s he doing now?
    and…how could he hurt his back?O_O

  28. Lucie on October 6, 2008 at 7:15 pm

    i like what people in here are guessing. that’s pretty funny. i just won’t do it. i can be some kind of freak with my imagination hahahah. i hope he gets well soon ( yeah i’m conformist ; i say what everyone else’s saying. f*ck it. )

    but what really happened ? and is the show really cancelled or will it be put back on another date ?

  29. WTF on October 6, 2008 at 7:06 pm

    Since Mike won’t tell us what happened – Let’s start guessing…..!

    Too much action in the bedroom and when he went to roll over and go to sleep, he fell off the bed.
    Playing baseball or golf and instead of hitting himself in the lip, he whacked himself in the back.
    Tried to be a tuff-guy lifting something heavy..which is dumb cause he can pay people with muscles to lift stuff.

    lol I love Chester but this is fun.

  30. faiintx on October 6, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    not the greatest card, but then again, im only 13, so im still a n00b at paint.

    ..&, poor chester. wasn’t it around this time last year when he broke his arm in melbourne?

    i hope he gets better 😦

    & mike, you’re my idol =]

  31. lynndarwinharris on October 6, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    Chester take care of yourself. I know about back trouble. One move the wrong way and it’s pain city. Mike –you and the rest of the band take care of yourselves. We love you guys!

  32. mike_n_LP_4ever on October 6, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    I agree with TiffTiff33LP; I get hurt all the time too! Whether it’s a tiny scratch or a broken leg, (which I’ve broken 4 times already!!!) lol. Chester is like a magnet he attracts: girls, clothes, AND bad things lol; they always go for him and ignore everyone else in the band, haha poor ChAzY!!! Well Mike, how did Chester hurt his back exactly? Is it from body bangin too much at concerts? hehe ;] But anyways, Chester I hope you’ll get better soon! I’ll pray for you everynight to get better, ok!

    Peace ❀

    -Catiana C.

  33. ShadowerLiltani on October 6, 2008 at 6:04 pm

    He needs to stop getting excited over those cup holders. Hey, but seriously though, keep us updated, okay? I’m guessing he probably either fell somehow, huh?

  34. analoggirl on October 6, 2008 at 5:31 pm

    Wow, I’m sorry to hear that Chester is hurt… again! I feel so sorry for him, knowing he must be in pain. Hopefully he has some good luck coming his way, as he definitely deserves it. Please let him know that we love him and we’re wishing for a speedy recovery.

  35. TiffTiff33LP on October 6, 2008 at 4:22 pm

    Chester…how do u always keep getting hurt?…..Im just like u>^_…Everywhere I go I always get hurt and I have no idea how.I know how u feel.Love u and mike and LP….I hope u get better,Be careful.!!!!!!!!!^^*

  36. LPfan4life721 on October 6, 2008 at 3:46 pm

    Hey Mike! I hope Chester gets better soon. You and the rest of the guys get some rest and take care of yourselves. Thanks for what you do. hugs

  37. psykobouliz on October 6, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    sorry the pics are big. lol and sorry i posted 2 comments. haha

  38. psykobouliz on October 6, 2008 at 3:29 pm

    aww poor him, WHAT did he do ONCE AGAIN??!! lol this guy is unbelievable!!! I hope he’ll get better soon! In waiting for that, i share with you the last 2 drawings i made of him, haha… I treated the same picture in 2 differents ways… A sketch and one more realistic… Seriously, you’re a wonderful artist, and i’d like to have your opinion… =)

  39. Lee on October 6, 2008 at 3:19 pm

    That sucks. Chester is too accident-prone for his own good. He should write his own book based on his injuries and how he’s overcome them all because of his amazing rock star status. πŸ˜€

    Also – lol at the big discussion about not talking about LP news, then suddenly posting 2 blogs of LP news. Ah, I love it.

    Hope Chaz gets better. ❀

  40. LPAngel on October 6, 2008 at 3:02 pm

    i hope he gets well really soon!! lots of hugs for him and be strong! =)=) hereΒ΄s my support =);)

  41. Pinkandblackbows on October 6, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    I hope hes gonna be okay
    whats he been doing now? lol
    if i could i’d send him a get well card and some flowers and chocolates πŸ˜€
    sorry to hear this

  47. Mikeshi_Linkfort on October 6, 2008 at 1:27 pm

    It is very bad! Chester should be more cautious in the further. Mike please tell to Chester that recovered more quickly and tell that Russian fans wish him health. πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  48. Monciukaz on October 6, 2008 at 1:01 pm

    OMG. how is Chester is you Mike have news about Chester please write!!!

  51. ultrapeter on October 6, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    OMG! Poor Chester! I wish I hurt my back but Chester stayed healthy. Please guys watch and save yourself. I won’t survive if something will happen with you. And please come back to Latvia! Your concert was the best day of my life!
    Chester, please get well soon!
    God Bless You All!

  52. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 6, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    Mike I’m asking this again, please answer me in some way Mike please, this is so important for me :/ This is my problem: I want to buy a MS DC Remix Xander but there’s no size fit for me, my size is 6.5 but there’s 8 as the smallest size in stock. So I’m asking you, is it possible to add size 6.5 in the stock? Please? 😦 I want to buy it so bad 😦

  84. alyeska39 on October 6, 2008 at 8:06 am

    Wait, wasn’t that the free show for the contest winner’s university? Man, that really sucks. For them and Chester.
    Dude, accident prone is an understatement. Hope it wasn’t serious and he gets better soon.
    Good thoughts it is. πŸ™‚ Be safe and get well soon Chester.

  85. IIIIANGEL911IIII on October 6, 2008 at 7:35 am

    !!!!!!!!!!!! WOW!! Poor Chester got hurt “again” !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Oh My God!!! Something like this always happen to him.
    I hope he get well soon.
    I agree with ffmuteik9. Maybe he really needs to go to the temple and wish for good luck. Sometimes it really works.

  89. skindesbous on October 6, 2008 at 7:15 am

    Poor Chester, I hope he gets better, I remember the first (and only) time I’ve seen him in a show, he did it perfect, like always, so if he needs to rest, that’s what we want him to do, because if he’s happy, we’re happy, and if he sings as always, we’ll keep loving him, and if the doctor says that, that must be true… Good thoughts enough? haha

  90. lp_fm_fan on October 6, 2008 at 7:14 am

    Awww, hope you feel better Chester!!!

    Just wondering, how did he injure his back?

  91. skindesbous on October 6, 2008 at 7:14 am

    Poor Chester, I hope he gets better, I remember the first (and only) time I’ve seen him in a show, he did it perfect, like always, so if he needs to rest, that’s what we want him to do, because if he’s happy, we’re happy, and if he sings as always, we’ll keep loving him, and if the doctor says that, that must be true… Good thoughts enough? haha

    Oh, what a bad news! I hope it’s not a serious injury and Chester will be fine soon! I wish good health to you and all LP members! You have a busy programme this month. Take care! Krassie K.

  102. ffmuteki9 on October 6, 2008 at 6:13 am


    If Chester doesnt care about religion, I recommend he or even you guys can go to a famous temple and worship while your in Taiwan.
    I think there must be something around him making him an unlucky man…..

    Or is he just too hyperactive??

  103. IGrabbedChestersWrist on October 6, 2008 at 6:11 am

    Come on Mike give more details. You know we’re all sitting here wondering what in the fuck he did to himself now.. lol ???

    Poor Chester. His wife should keep him locked in the house and only let him out to play LP concerts.

  104. DD on October 6, 2008 at 5:50 am

  113. martinac on October 6, 2008 at 5:18 am

  121. hybridkyoto on October 6, 2008 at 4:39 am

    Aw, poor Chazzy… I hope he’s okay. It wasn’t the cupholders again, was it? Hope he feels better soon.

  122. stardust001 on October 6, 2008 at 4:38 am

    Aw man. That’s a bummer. Many wishes for a speedy recovery!!!

    Poor guy. I hope it’s nothing serious.

    See ya. x.

  123. Jelly on October 6, 2008 at 4:37 am

    What a bad news! But I believe that Chester will recover soon! C’mon guy! Pls get back and rock the world!

    With all good wishes *

  124. CaiCai718 on October 6, 2008 at 4:27 am

    Oh man, again? I’m beginning to think Chester should just go to the doctors like every other week. Then again, he’d probably injure himself on the way.

    He’s got quite the stamina though, it’s crazy. So, best wishes, he’ll be in our thoughts and prayers. [Even though that’s unnecessary.]

    P.S. Well, the capitalization/grammar thing is coming along nicely.

  125. AndyJ on October 6, 2008 at 4:08 am

    Get well soon chester, be back witha bang πŸ˜‰
    Lv u guys…..njoy.

  126. NoFace on October 6, 2008 at 4:06 am

    Have you made him the ‘Why me?’ shirt already? Get well soon, Chustah.

    Btw, the bright white layout hurts my eyes. I have been checking Kanye’s blog out lately ( and zomg, yes, I think you guys have quite the same blogging style (no hot girls post on your blog tho, rofl) –> maybe you would want to push the blog post more toward the center of the page and add more colors? Now where are you Jeezy!

  127. Jhuryn on October 6, 2008 at 4:06 am

    Chester certainly is accident/ injury prone. Someone needs to put him in an inflatable bubble so he can stay healthy and safe. Feel better soon!

  128. Janni_Loves_LP on October 6, 2008 at 3:57 am

    Aww not again. Poor guy 😦 Anyways Get well soon, Chaz! Best wishes to you, from your friends in Denmark πŸ˜‰ Take care – Janni ❀ *Thinks good toughts* ^^

  129. Joanie_LP on October 6, 2008 at 3:55 am

    OFC we’ll think good thoughts for our beloved friend! πŸ™‚ What else can we think of, poor guy doesn’t have much luck 😦

  130. Giselle on October 6, 2008 at 3:15 am

    Aww, that sucks. Best wishes to you guys, hope Chester recovers quickly! xx

  131. Brittney on October 6, 2008 at 3:13 am

    Chester hurt himself again? Poor guy! Hope he feels better very soon :]

  132. ManBearPig on October 6, 2008 at 3:11 am

    Poor guy. Many well wishes for a speedy recovery. Back injuries suck, a lot. It’s definitely up there with the crappiest things to get hurt, since your back pretty much is used for any movement. Mucho sympathy.

  133. I_B_Long on October 6, 2008 at 2:39 am

    aw man, i know (somewhat) how he feels, i just seriously hurt my back a few weeks ago (jumping while carrying a heavy toddler=bad idea) poor chester, i hope he gets better soon!
    and to anyone who feels like complaining, 1 or 2 cancelled shows are better than a ruined back and a ruined career. so shush.
    tell him he’s in my thoughts and i hope he gets well very soon!

  134. Noe_Kenji on October 6, 2008 at 1:53 am

    get weel very soon chazy!
    take care guys

    love & respect

    edit1: come on guys, chester is not ill all the time, hes a human!! lol even if generally we forgot it… and our guys live a hard life: travelling all the time, making shows almost everyday etc… And i think, the last time he was very sick, was the last december or january, as Mike too..

    edit2: to get well very fast, drink lot of green tea! πŸ™‚ i promisse it works!
    My best wishes!! πŸ™‚

  135. Ezza on October 6, 2008 at 1:48 am

    far out chester injured again???? hope the injury isnt too bad and it heals fast πŸ™‚

  136. cuz on October 6, 2008 at 1:45 am

    I was away from internet for three days and something happened… Poor Chester 😦 He always has a bad luck with his health… Hope it’s nothing serious and he’ll be fine very soon.

    On a side note I have different feelings about this post. So sad Chester is sick but the last sentence in your edit gave me a kind of warmth. I just love the frendship inside LP. Take care of Chester, yourself and the rest of the guys and pass by my hugs πŸ™‚

  137. maria on October 6, 2008 at 1:23 am

    Hi Mike) my best wishes to Chester πŸ™‚ and it’s borring to be ill ( So Chester get well )
    And I’m suprised to know that there’s even Hard Rock Hotel) There’s also Hard Rock cafe)as far as I know)

  138. Susi on October 6, 2008 at 12:58 am

    oh damn,again…get well soon chaz!

  139. Jaclyn on October 6, 2008 at 12:55 am

    Best wishes for our dear sweet Chester ❀

    I hope you’ll soon be well again;
    And feeling up to par.
    And doing what you want to do;
    And be back to who you are.

    Three little words are all I wish;
    The words are “Get well soon.”
    If I could, I’d send them out to you;
    Written on a big balloon! xxx

  140. ms_shock on October 6, 2008 at 12:55 am

    poor baby……… Mike, he needs massage! πŸ˜‰

  141. max_payn on October 6, 2008 at 12:50 am

    Luckily LP is not known for cancelling shows, which is fantastic.
    Get well soon, Chaz, my thoughts are with you !

  147. shirayuki_ice111 on October 5, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    Oh man, Chester really has issues with his body! He has been hurt countless number of times, and even poisonous spiders are attracted to him.. Oh well, GET BETTER SOON, Chester! I want to see a healthy lead singer screaming his head off on stage for the next tour! ;D

  148. KATHYxx on October 5, 2008 at 11:53 pm

    I wish Chester gets well soon.
    He just has the worst luck 😦

  149. Giffy on October 5, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    GET WELL SOON!! and tell him one more time ‘PLEASE TAKE A MUCH MORE BETTER CARE OF URSELF’ awww poor Chaz sniff sniff

  150. Anstice on October 5, 2008 at 11:37 pm

    It is absolutely horrible that Chester hurt his back, but I just laughed so hard. I just imagined somebody sitting there thinking, “DAMN CHESTER AND HIS F***ING ACCIDENTS!” And that was only because you said think good thoughts. Good times.

  151. misterx on October 5, 2008 at 11:29 pm

    aww, get well sooon, chester! no more towel fights with phoenix!!!
