Linkin Park Chester Bennington Tribute ... With Linkin Park

Overnight in the US, Linkin Park's very, very special tribute concert in celebration of the life of their former frontman Chester Bennington has been taking place at The Hollywood Bowl in California.

Linkin Park & Friends Celebrate Life In Honor of Chester Bennington will begin at 2.45am Irish time Saturday 28 October. "I wrote something about eight days later, and I want to share it with you", he said, admitting that the song was not finished.

Although tickets for the one-night-only show quickly sold out, the concert is streaming live exclusively on YouTube via Linkin Park's page on Friday at 10:45 EST.

He said it "was by pure fate" the concert happened to be on the first night of his American holiday, and he knew he "had to be there".


"Have I been lost all along/ Was there something I could say/ Or something I should have done".

The band had been set to go on tour starting July 27 in Boston, with dates stretching into the fall.

Since his death, Chester's wife Talinda Bennington has been campaigning for mental health awareness. "It is my mission to make it easier to access mental health resources".

Alanis Morrisette, Blink-182, Taka from One Ok Rock and M. Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold also took part alongside video tributes from Paul McCartney, Metallica and Thirty Seconds To Mars.
