Linkin Park Vocalist Chester Bennington to Have Shoulder Surgery
Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington is set to undergo shoulder surgery in the next few weeks after sustaining an injury during the band’s tour in Asia earlier this year. This has forced the group to cancel their last show of 2011, pulling out of the DeLuna Festival in Florida.
Linkin Park released the following statement on their official website:
“We regret that we must withdraw from our October 16 performance at DeLuna Fest in Pensacola, FL. As much as we were looking forward to rocking our final date of the year with our Florida fans, Chester has been advised to have immediate shoulder surgery as a result of an injury he sustained during our recent tour in Asia.”
LP have been touring almost non-stop since releasing their most recent album, A Thousand Suns, in September of 2010. The band is currently writing material for a new record.
