LINKIN PARK Pay Tribute to Chester Bennington with Star-Studded Tribute Concert: Rolling Stone
Linkin Park bid farewell to their singer Chester Bennington with a tribute concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday night. There were a ton of musical guests on hand to help celebrate the life of Bennington, who passed away in July. Among them were Gavin Rossdale of Bush, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Korn’s Jonathan Davis, Alanis Morisette and many others. There were also a few songs in the set that did not have anyone singing, such as the Linkin Park hit “Numb”, and the crowd took over the vocals while a spotlight was shining on a lone microphone on stage.
There were also video testimonials from the likes of Paul McCartney, Metallica and Jared Leto. You can watch the concert in its entirety below. The future of Linkin Park is yet to be determined, as the members have said they do not know if they will continue as a band.
