damn everyone really just needs to calm down and take there drugs because most of you are being total a**holes for something that wasn't predicted or atesapting, some of you say you dont care he was sick i bet you if they would have continued with the concert there would have been a blog on how horrible chester sounded and i know i wouldn't want to hear him like that. so grow up people he is a HUMAN and has the right to call in sick to work.... get well soon chester <3

@ Marcua Arelius I understand u being upset but its LINKIN PARK's concert 98% of the people there are there to seem THEM preform. Without chester it just wouldn't be the same. So stop hating on LP if pendulum is so great they can do their own gig here for their fans.

Depends on their schedule, the arena's schedule, etc.
Comment by Joe Z on February 10, 2011 at 1:50pm
do you guys think theyll reschedule it?  does that actually ever happen?  i hope they do...
Comment by jessiexo on February 10, 2011 at 1:47pm
Max. capacity of the arena is actually 20 000... (If they were playing a 360 show)... not 40 000...

You have to reschedule.  Sick or not, if you  are that sick then you cant play friday.  Thats what bothers me, plust the money, plus the dissapointment, heartbreak, its not just a show.  You have to come back ASAP for the 40,000 fans that missed you.  I hope you get better, and I have NEVER MISSED A SHOW SINCE 1999.  THIS HURTS.

@Marcus Arelius Chester's a punk?! Why? Because he's sick?! Do you really want him to permanently damage his voice and end his career prematurely?! Give me a break! Chester even mentioned on his Twitter account that he was sick and was sorry to the Toronto fans that he didn't give his full energy as he usually does. You're the pathetic punk acting like a childish, immature sore loser because of a show being cancelled. And Pendulum blows Linkin Park out of the water? They may be good, but they only played for 30 minutes. How do I know? Because I was at the Toronto show on February 8. And Chester had problems singing the notes. I was even worried at one time, that the band could cancel the show instead of rescheduling because of their touring schedule. And I was right. One more thing Marcus, GROW UP and stop writing like a 12-year old!
