"Had a blast watching people mosh to 'In the End' and then flip me off when we played 'Heavy'."



Linkin Park didn't receive the best reaction to their new material at Hellfest.

The band headlined the Sunday of the festival, but when it came to playing new song 'Heavy' not everyone was too happy, with someone launching a jug at frontman Chester Bennington whilst he performed.

You can watch it happen below.



Jeez.

Chester has since responded to what happened at the festival on his Twitter saying...


Well then.

'Heavy' is taken from the band's new album 'One More Light', you can check out the original version below.



This isn't the first time Chester has commented on fans reactions to their newer material, with him coming under fire for telling people to "move the fuck on" from 'Hybrid Theory'.

The band will also play some UK shows next month, here's the dates...

JULY

03 - LONDON O2
04 - LONDON Brixton Academy
06 - BIRMINGHAM Barclaycard Arena

Their show at Manchester Arena on July 07 has been cancelled due to the damage caused to the venue by the recent terror attack. Head here for more information.
