Linkin Park have been forced to cancel a five date tour of China after frontman Chester Bennington injured his back.

A statement said Bennington had been ordered to refrain from “travelling or any physical activities”.

Linkin Park were due to perform in the country to help raise money for the victims of May's earthquake in the Sichuan province.

Despite the cancellation, the group are to donate money to their nonprofit organisation, Music For Relief, which will be used to help with reconstruction efforts in the area.

The statement didn't elaborate on how Bennington sustained the injury, which also caused the cancellation of a concert in Las Vegas last Monday (October 6th).
