Linkin Park will host a tribute concert for Bennington at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 27
Korn, System Of A Down, Bring Me The Horizon, Avenged Sevenfold members and more have revealed that they will perform at Linkin Park‘s tribute concert in honour of late frontman Chester Bennington next month.
The nu-metal idol was found dead in his California home after taking his own life on July 20. He was aged just 41-years-old.
Linkin Park will host a tribute concert for Bennington at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 27. It will be the first time the group’s surviving five members will perform together since Bennington’s passing.
The band will be joined by a number of special guests, with the band’s fee for the show going to Music For Relief’s One More Light Fund in memory of Chester. Tickets go on public sale this Friday (September 22) here.
Many artists involved took to Twitter earlier today to promote the show. Among those were Korn frontman Jonathan Davis, Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows and Synyster Gates, three members of System of a Down, Yellowcard singer William Ryan Key and Kiiara, who featured on Linkin Park’s recent single ‘Heavy’.
BMTH frontman Oli Sykes took to Twitter to confirm his involvement. “I’m honoured to announce I’ll be performing w/ @LinkinPark in memory of Chester. Tickets on sale tomorrow,” he wrote.
“He was such a happy guy, he was such a fun guy,” Shinoda said. “When he’d walk in the room, there was such a positive, funny, upbeat energy, and that’s what we wanna get out of this show… I know it’s gonna be a roller coaster of emotion. But when we talk about this and when we’re focusing on the show, it’s really about, like we say, celebrating life.”
