Back in July, we lost Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park. To honor his memory, a concert will be held at the Hollywood Bowl, the “Linkin Park and Friends Celebrate Life in Honor of Chester Bennington.”
Featuring the surviving members of the band, this is the first time the band has performed on stage together since Bennington’s death. While the concert is already sold-out, the band has decided to live-stream the event on their YouTube page, allowing fans from all over the world to see the tribute being made to Bennington.
According to Rolling Stone, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda said that “I know that for some of the guys in the band, getting on stage is more scary than other guys in the band. But I will say that for all of us, it’s definitely the thing that we want to do. It feels like the right way to celebrate Chester.”
The Los Angeles concert will be one-night-only, featuring the talents of Blink-182, Korn’s Jonathan Davis, Machine Gun Kelly, System of a Down’s Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan, and Kiiara, as well as members of Avenged Sevenfold, Yellowcard and Bring Me the Horizon. Proceeds from the benefit concert will go to Music for Relief’s One More Light Fund.
