LINKIN PARK Singer Says He Plans On 'Ripping Everyone's Faces Off' On Upcoming Tour

LINKIN PARK frontman Chester Bennington has posted a statement to the band's official web site thanking the fans for their support during his recent hospital stay due to severe back and abdominal pains.

Chester's message reads as follows:

"First of all I'd like to thank everyone from fans & bands to my friends, and the hospital staff who have been very supportive and understanding of my situation. I finally got out of the hospital over the weekend after 9 days, and the doctor instructed me to rest for the next 2 - 3 weeks. Right now it seems like it was some bacteria or virus that spread throughout my intestines and body, putting me in intense pain. It also would not let me eat for a week. My doctors and nurses were amazing, and very helpful during my stay.

"We are working on when we will be making up the missed European headline dates, and I am really bummed we had to miss the festivals. I plan on playing our warm up show in Las Vegas on June 27th, and ripping everyone's face off this summer on Summer Sanitarium. I also wanted to say I truly appreciate the tens of thousands of get-well emails I got from fans. Our fans really are the best in the world."
