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.

Gotta be honest here, I ad tix to the Cincy show was was extremely excited that LP was going to be back in town after several years of touring mostly overseas. But with the cancellation and lack of a make up, inability to coordinate a refund, and the apparent desire to appease their overseas fans more than those of us in the states who made them big in the first place I'm getting REALLY turned off to LP.

@ Crystal: It's amazing how many bands have started doing that. Metallica are notorious for doing that.

@ cathy I agree its sad they can never find time to tour in the US anymore. The really sad thing is they have three months before going oversees and they cant find time to reschedule the DC/CT/Cincinnati shows but jumped at rescheduling the Texas shows.

@ Cathy: There's no plans (as of now) to reschedule the DC/CT/Cinci shows.

 

Topspin told people refunds would be done last week - hasn't been done. They won't give a straight answer to anyone as to when the refunds will actually occur.
