Linkin Park's Next LP Causes Postponement Of Grey Daze Benefit

Band's management orders members back into studio to meet recording obligations.

The benefit concert at which Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington was scheduled to perform with his former band Grey Daze has been postponed indefinitely.

The Bobby Benish Benefit Concert was organized to raise money for Bennington's Grey Daze bandmate who is having difficulty paying his medical bills since being diagnosed with a brain tumor (see "Linkin Park's Bennington To Reunite With Old Band").

According to Linkin Park's official Web site (www.linkinpark.com), the one-off reunion show, which was originally scheduled for September 7 at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, was postponed because of "unavoidable time constraints of recording the next Linkin Park album."

In a statement on the site Bennington said, "It's very unfortunate that we are having to postpone this concert but our management has pulled everyone back from vacations and various activities in order to meet our recording obligations. However I will continue to help Bobby and his family at this very difficult time."
