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. Confirmed special guests include Blink-182, Korn, Machine Gun Kelly, System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, Yellowcard, Kiiara, and Bring Me The Horizon.
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 for this emotional night are still available. Get yours here.
