I just got an email from management saying that the Las Vegas show is definitely on. Happy to hear Chester is feeling better–we’ll see you all at the concert.

Side notes: Dallas and Houston have been rescheduled. Dallas at the American Airlines Center is now on Wednesday March 2nd. Houston at the Toyota Center is now on Thursday March 3rd. Info for people attending the rescheduled shows is HERE.

Also: our Madison Square Garden show will be airing on the FUSE network this week (tomorrow, Friday Feb 18th, at 9:30pm / 8:30 central). Here’s a taste:

PRESS RELEASE:

After having to cancel and postpone several shows due to illness of co-lead singer Chester Bennington, LINKIN PARK will resume its A Thousand Suns world tour at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Saturday February 19th. Bennington was hospitalized last week with a viral infection and complications from treatment but has been cleared by his physicians to return to the stage.

“I’d like to thank our fans for all the kind wishes I’ve received,” says Chester Bennington. “I’m looking forward to being back on stage, which is a lot more fun than being in a hospital. I also want to apologize to our fans in the cities affected by the cancelations and postponements and let them know we’ll be back as soon as we can.”

Linkin Park’s live show is a transformative multi-media experience, with visual technology that befits the power of their music. MTV.com praised the tour as “a hit-packed pummeling set” while Artist Direct observed that “rock in the 21st century was defined by Linkin Park tonight.”Joining Linkin Park from February 19th through 26th will be UK legends, The Prodigy.

@Kirley Did you ever stop to think that they're doing the best they can??? Chester *just* got out of the the hospital. Linkin Park is the best band around and VERY loyal to their fans. Show some respect.

I agree with Kirley. I'm glad Chester is feeling better, I was starting to get really worried about the lack of news. But I would like to hear if there's anything going on for the cancelled shows.
