Linkin Park hold tribute concert in honour of Chester Bennington

Last night (Oct. 27), Linkin Park hit the stage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles with a wealth of guest artists as they paid tribute to the late Chester Bennington with a special 31 song set that spanned over three hours.

Linkin Park announced the tribute show back in September, marking the first time the band have performed since Bennington's unexpected death in July, after canceling their scheduled US tour and Japan appearances.

Bennington, 41, took his own life in July (17), after battling depression.

The band's co-vocalist Mike Shinoda said in a statement that the song is about "sending love to those who lost someone".

Since his death, Chester's wife Talinda Bennington has been campaigning for mental health awareness. "He was incredibly proud of the music done through relief, he knew it saved lives. It is my mission to make it easier for people to have access to mental health resources".
