The July 20th death of Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington may still be fresh, but the band’s remaining members are coping with their loss by honoring their friend in a special tribute concert.
The show is scheduled to take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles October 27, and marks the first performance from Linkin Park since news of Bennington’s death rocked the music world this summer. Along with the tribute show announcement, the band also shared an emotional new video for their song “One More Light,” off their latest album of the same name.
“The band will be joined by a number of other artists, for an unforgettable night of music to honor the man that touched the lives of so many around the world,” Linkin Park wrote in an official statement on their website. There is no word yet on other confirmed acts scheduled to appear at the tribute concert, though one could speculate Thirty Seconds to Mars may be involved after Jared Leto publicly eulogized his friend at last month’s VMA Awards.
Bennington tragically took his own life at the age of 41 following a period of depression, though news of his death was a complete shock to his family, friends, and fans around the world.
The unforgettable event will raise money for Music for Relief’s One More Light Fund in memory of the late singer. Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 22. Be sure check them out here.
