    Yesterday, Linkin Park were scheduled to perform at Heineken's Jammin' Festival in Imola, Italy when a freak whirlwind 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."

    Thanks to Gage!

    I heard about this already...

    but didn't anyone announced the weather or something in TV to prevent the fans and the bands before this happened?...

    I'm really sorry and I hope all of the fans recover as soon as possible! :hug:

    Who knows. It could be a mix of the weather stations being incorrect and just a random storm that no one expected obviously.

    That's pretty disrespectful.

    My prayers go out to everyone affected.

    Well I suppose it was a violent storm but not a fucking tornado. There are no tornados in Italy.

    It said "whirlwind", which can be translated in some cultures as "tornado".

    Stranger things have happened.

    Not cool. You can't really predict Mother Nature.

    The show was cancelled today too, but they are playing tomorrow, right?

    Yeah, I suppose you're right. The global climate's gone to hell anyway..

    Hope the people there will be alright and get to see the show eventually.

    Some say that the whole tsunami last year or the year before screwed up the global climate. My father was telling me that before but he didn't elaborate too much. The weather is surely weird!

    Tornadoes can happen anywhere in the world, ya know. They're just really common in the US because of the geography/climate on the Great Plains.

    I was poking fun at the randomness of the tornado there, not the people hurt. So I apologize for that.
