Linkin Park singer reveals post-leg surgery photos

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington is sharing photos following surgery on his leg, an injury that forced the cancellation of the remaining North American dates on The Hunting Party winter tour.

“Headed into surgery in an hour. Ass kicking will commence in 6 weeks,” tweeted the singer on Jan 20, followed by a first post-op image of his foot in a cast. “I will now set off metal detectors everywhere.”

On January 23, Bennington posted a photo while getting some fresh air outside in a wheelchair. “First ray of sunshine since the surgery. Thank you to everyone for all your support and well wishes.”

On Monday, the rocker posted “Looking at my ankle for the first time since the surgery. IT LOOKS INSANE!!!!” and tweeted two pictures of the scars from the leg surgery.

“Lookin good,” he wrote, adding, “Thanks for stopping at the tattoo Doc.”

Linkin Park performed the first three dates of the winter run with guests Rise Against and Of Mice & Men before shutting things down.

“The Hunting Party” – the band’s sixth album – debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 last June with opening week sales of 110,000 copies.
