Summer of 2017 has yielded a lot of great albums and tours, but just as much, if not more, grief. With the passing of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and subsequently, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park within a month of one another has left the rock world a little sadder and more hollow. In Bennington’s honor, his bandmates and family will be hosting a one-night only celebration of his life.
This celebration of Bennington will be a night of music set to take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. The event will be the first time Linkin Park (LP) has performed together since Bennington’s death on July 20th and they will be joined by a number of other guests and performers. There are several surprises in store for views as just some of the guests of the night include: Jonathan Davis of Korn, Yellowcard, System of a Down, Avenged Sevenfold, and Blink-182.
Cleveland’s native son Machine Gun Kelly will also be making an appearance to honor Chester’s memory, making this his first performance with LP since they cancelled their One More Light tour following Bennington’s passing. Additionally, Linkin Park established The One More Light fund in the frontman’s honor which is a part of the non-profit Music For Relief. To donate to the fund click here.
The special one-night engagement will livestream on YouTube Friday, Oct. 27 at 7:45 p.m. PT exclusively at the Linkin Park YouTube channel.
