UPDATE: The show has been rescheduled for March 3, promoter Live Nation said in a press release Tuesday.
Sad news for folks holding tickets to tomorrow night's Linkin Park/The Prodigy gig at Toyota Center. Due to an illness, lead singer Chester Bennington has been sidelined from performing by doctor's orders, making Tuesday at least the band's fourth canceled date on this tour behind last year's A Thousand Suns:
Linkin Park has been forced to cancel their February 15th show in Houston, TX at the Toyota Center. Chester is still under doctor's orders to refrain from performing. The band sincerely regrets this unavoidable cancellation and apologizes to fans for any disappointment caused. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.
No word yet on any rescheduled dates for the Linkin Park show, but Rocks Off will keep you posted. The band recently served as the musical guest on a recent Saturday Night Live episode hosted by returning funnyman Dana Carvey.
