Mike wanted to light Chester on fire
Sunday, February 13, 2011

Interesting interview with Rockerrazzi where Mike talked about setting Chester on fire! Quoting Mister Shinoda:
You know, the economy being what it is, money is being a little tight for everybody... So we can't get the pyrotechniques we normally get so instead of that, I'm gonna just light Chester on fire. First show, we'll go big with this and we'll see what happen from there. I think it's gonna be pretty spectacular.

Did he know?

No, of course not. In my head it's going to be really fun and exciting and I see a lot... I mean, the screams of the song being really elevated, it's gonna be really awesome.

Uncasvilled, CT show canceled. Mike's blog
Thursday, February 10, 2011

Another show has been canceled due to Chester's bad health. Seems like his illness is more severe than we first thought. Mike posted something concerning this on his blog

February 10, 2011

Hi guys,

We are deeply disappointed that we’ve had to cancel our second show in a row. It’s been a long time since we’ve played in your town, and were excited for you to hear the new music and see the new production. As you know, it’s not often that we have to cancel a gig–Chester appreciates all the love you all have sent on the website, and we know that it will help him to bounce back soon.

We know it’s not the same, but we’d like to give you a free audio download of any show from this tour. If you purchased your tickets through linkinpark.com, check your email over the next few days for details on how you will receive your refund and your download.


Mike and LP

And #GetWellSoonChester too! 

Let's retweet and pray for our boy.

Linkin Park on Waiting For The End success

Mike and Chester discussed the success of "Waiting For The End" with MTV yesterday

"I think we've ... maybe a switch went off in my head when Hybrid Theory went diamond [for certified sales of more than 10 million copies]. It's like, 'Nobody's going to have a diamond record [again], so why try?' " he continued. "We want to be happy — of course, we want the band to be successful — but, you know, at the same time, we do want to push the envelope and do things that are creatively challenging."
