im just gunna say this straight up Linkin Park and their music and members are fing amazing, and the live shows are sick. but when it comes to the members health that comes first over anything. sry for the fans that arent gunna be able to see the cancelled shows, but u guys do need to realize that they havent had much rest lately and having back to back shows and traveling alot doesnt help either. singing takes alot. chester take as much time as you need my friend, and please get well. we all wanna see you back in action. with much lovee your greatest fans <3

I am so sorry to that Chester is sick :(  I hope he gets well soon.


I like many fans in DC would like to be able to download the free show. The tickets i got were purchased by one person. anyone know how I can access this download? I am unable to reach the person who actually purchased the tickets :/


I do wish Chester a speedy and safe recovery and hope that he will continue to rock his next shows!!!!

Well it wasnt DC101 who we won them from. They just gave me a lot of emotional distress the week that they were giving them out. Basically I would be waiting in front of the radio, cellphone in hand, waiting for them to say "call now," and I would get such a huuuuge adrenaline rush that I still wasn't completely calmed down a full hour later. That was like, twice a day for three days straight. At least, that's when I was actually trying. No, we ended up winning them from a drawing at My friend emailed them about it, and they just told her to hold on to the tickets and hope that they reschedule it.

Im so sorry Elisabeth :( Call DC 101 to check if there's a way! Or go there! I can give you the address if you want!

Actually, I think it's worse for me because the tickets were won. I mean, this concert has already put me through immense emotional distress, especially during the week that DC101 was giving away tickets.
I don't exactly have the money to just drop everything and go to an $80 concert whenever I want. The fact that my friend won the tickets meant that I could actually go, for once. Where everybody else can get refunds for their tickets, my friend and I can't get anything. So if this concert is rescheduled, you guys can buy your tickets with the same money you used to buy the tickets for tonights show. But me, if they don't accept the tickets that we already have, we can't go at all.

Wow... What can I say?????? I can understand we the DC fans are coming from.. I would be devestated to however... Chesters health needs to come first. I was at the toronto show and you could tell he was suffuring.... He could hardly keep up with the long notes.... He even said sorry to his fans and thanks for singing when he couldnt. For the person who is Going on and on about Pendulam... Your dissing LP because the band you love wont play for their fans here... You cant be mad at LP for that. I cant beleive some people.. He deserves a night off when he is sick just like anyone else.. Are you in a band??? Do you know how gruling it is? How sleep deprived they are NO... Wow .... I am truly sorry for the fans who are going to miss the show.. I feel lucky to be able to see them on the 8th... Chester pushed through that concert as well... And for all the real true LP fans...You know if he could be there he would be!!! He has performed before sick... broken writst... and much more.. So get over yourself... and Grow Up.
