LATEST: Linkin Park rocker Chester Bennington has been released from hospital after doctors discovered a parasite or intestinal disorder was behind his chronic stomach pains.

The singer checked into a Los Angeles hospital on 30 May (03) complaining of intense chest and stomach pains.

During his 11 days in hospital, Bennington had multiple tests but doctors had trouble diagnosing his symptoms, since they stemmed from his lower abdomen.

Touring and video plans in Europe have been cancelled up to 24 June (03), but Bennington is expected to be ready for the start of the SUMMER SANITARIUM tour with Metallica and Limp Bizkit on 4 July (03).
