Linkin Park Cancels Show After Tornado Hits Venue Injuring Fans
Yesterday, Linkin Park were scheduled to perform at Heineken's Jammin' Festival in Imola, Italy when a freak tornado hit the area, uprooting trees, overturning cars, and knocking over sound towers and girders at the festival venue. NME reports 25 people were injured by the falling towers, although none fatally and only one sustained serious fractures.
As a result, Linkin Park alongside Pearl Jam, My Chemical Romance, and The Killers cancelled their performances in the interest of their fans safety. Linkin Park released this statement:
"We are saddened by the events that happened in Venice today and our hearts are with the injured fans and their families. The Linkin Park family wishes them a speedy recovery and hope to see them the next time we visit Italy."
