From Politico:

"KINGS OF CHAOS are headlining A Rock and Roll Salute to the Armed Services Heroes Ball IV at the Warner Theater (Washington D.C.) Jan. 19. Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling and South Dakota Sen. John Thune are serving as honorary hosts for the concert. Proceeds for the event go to Folded Flag Foundation, Guardians for Heroes and Paralyzed Veterans of America. Organizers are providing 500 tickets to wounded warriors, Gold Star families, active duty and local vets."

This goes right along with recent interviews with Kings of Chaos, who say they plan to continue performing into 2017. It is unknown how long Chester will continue to be a member of this band, but it can be assumed he'll do their performances up until the Linkin Park touring cycle begins.

Today, Matt Sorum from Kings of Chaos posted a message to their Facebook page saying in part (full message in the link), "KOC is your home away from home now....I believe 2017 will be glorious for us all...thank you to all the fans that showed up on some cold East Coast nights and supporting this new formation of a band . It means so much to us....and Chester your youthful presence bring a fresh take on so many classic iconic songs."

 

1/16 Update:

 

The event has been canceled. According to iHeartRadio, a source with the band said, "Some guys in Kings of Chaos didn't want their name associated with Trump." The event will still take place, with Bret Michaels and Jack Blades in Kings Of Chaos's place.

 

This is odd since Royal Machines played the night of the RNC in Cleveland, but for a military benefit, which is what this event is for as well.

Lol @ calling this an "inauguration show" when it benefits, among other people, Gold Star families - one of the numerous groups of people our lovely President-elect went out of his way to shit all over on his campaign trail. This definitely has nothing to do with Trump, our webmaster just saw an opportunity to make this about his candidate of choice by writing an uber-clickbaity headline.

No one said it had anything to do with Trump. The press release I got actually says inaugural week event and that's what I went by, so yes I could have worded the title better. Now I can see why people could get confused with the title so I'll edit it. If you follow our social media, that is, if you haven't blocked it yet on your post-election blocking spree, you'll see I have addressed this several times days before your comment here.

 

If I gave a fuck about headlines I wouldn't put "Linkin Park adds Hungary" or whatever the hell I type - stupid headlines.

 

It's similar to the event this summer where Chester guested at a show just after the RNC but it wasn't affiliated with it, it was a benefit show. This is also a benefit for the military.

You'll have to get on board sooner or later, he is our president now.

I doubt it was Chester due to him participating in a similar event in Cleveland around the RNC. Probably Matt Sorum.

 

It's unfortunate military events are booked surrounding these political events. Just hold it at a different time...maybe easier said than done. Sucks it had to be canceled in the end due to this.

Chester hates Trump, it's kinda weird that it got cancelled but somehow this should be linked to Trump.
