Linkin Park Show, Video Pay Tribute To Chester Bennington
Linkin Park announced Monday it will pay tribute to their late frontman Chester Bennington with a special celebration on Oct. 27.
Set for the Hollywood Bowl in L.A., the one-night-only event will mark the first time the surviving five members of Linkin Park have performed in public since Bennington's death on July 20.
They'll be joined on stage by a number of guest artists.
The band also debuted the official video for "One More Light," which was directed by Joe Hahn of Linkin Park in collaboration with the group's videographer Mark Fiore.
"It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it,” said Hahn, in a release. “I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people who need it.
"As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people who connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people who want that connection.”
Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda added: "'One More Light' was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end. In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester.
"We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.”
