NEW YORK: Linkin Park is canceling the rest of its U.S. tour after its lead singer injured his leg.
Chester Bennington says in a statement Tuesday that he needs immediate medical attention and that it is impossible for him to perform.
Bennington did not say how he injured his leg.
Linkin Parkâ€™s â€œThe Hunting Partyâ€ tour kicked off last week and the rock band only performed three concerts. Bennington appeared onstage with crutches at the bandâ€™s Sunday concert in Indianapolis.
Bennington says he is â€œdisappointedâ€ that he cannot perform and called the first few shows â€œmagical.â€
The statement says fans can seek refunds for the remaining 16 shows at point of purchase.
The bandâ€™s Grammy-winning hits include â€œIn the End,â€ â€œNumbâ€ and â€œNew Divideâ€œ –AP
