First, let me say that I truly hope Chester recovers quickly and is able to continue with the rest of the shows on this part of the tour!


That being said, please understand how incredibly disappointed I am that no provision is (currently) being made to reschedule the DC show.  My 14-year-old daughter has been a huge fan of Linkin Park for the past 5 years when she "discovered" their music in 5th grade.  To finally have the band tour the US and include the DC area was fantastic news!  We were so excited to get tickets to the Feb 10th show, including the VIP package to make this concert experience for her something truly special.  Then, we found out Tuesday that we had been selected to be part of the Meet & Greet with the band.  My daughter has been walking on clouds ever since!  


Now I have to tell her that the show is cancelled.  Not rescheduled.  Just CANCELLED!  No concert.  No meeting the band.  NOTHING!


So, with every fiber of my body I wish Chester the best in his recovery.  But I implore the band to reconsider rescheduling the show for the thousands of DC area fans who will miss out entirely on this fabulous tour!

I was so pumped for this show!  Disappointed beyond belief.  Sorry that Chester is sick, but bumped none-the-less.
