Rockers Linkin Park have cancelled the Chinese leg of their current tour because frontman Chester Bennington has suffered a back injury.
The band was forced to axe a show in Los Angeles on Monday (06Oct08) due to Bennington's injury.
And the frontman's ailment has meant the cancellation of a further four shows in China and one in Taiwan until 21 October (08).
The string of gigs were part of a fundraiser to benefit Sichuan, an area ravaged by the devastating earthquake in May (08).
But the band has vowed not to let the charity down - it has promised to contribute to the nonprofit organisation, Music for Relief, which will benefit post-earthquake reconstruction.
And the Chinese concert promoter and the World Bank have agreed to match the donation.
No further details on Bennington's injury were available as WENN went to press.
