Launching in Orlando Jan. 15 with special guests Rise Against and Of Mice And Men, The Hunting Party included dates on the East Coast, as well as in the Midwest and Canada. 

An announcement from the band states that Bennington’s injury requires “immediate medical attention making it physically impossible for Bennington to perform.” While announcing the cancellation of tonight’s Pittsburgh gig, the local Post-Gazette notes that Bennington appeared on stage using crutches during the band’s Sunday night concert in Indianapolis.

“I’m really disappointed this injury has made it impossible to continue with this tour,” Bennington said.  “The first couple of shows were just magical.  We will truly miss not being with our fans for the next few weeks.  Hope to see you again soon.”
