Linkin Park hosted a tribute concert featuring some big-name musical talents to celebrate the life of Chester Bennington. Over 18,000 fans showed up at the three-hour-long concert honoring the Linkin Park frontman on Friday night at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The show not only honored Bennington, who committed suicide in July at the age of 41, but it also brought awareness to those suffering mental illness.
The concert, which was livestreamed on YouTube, featured some impressive bands and singers. In attendance for the concert were Blink-182, Alanis Morissette, Gavin Rossdale, Machine Gun Kelly, Steve Aoki, Avenged Sevenfold, and members of System Of A Down. There were also video tributes from musical luminaries such as Paul McCartney and Metallica.
Linkin Park urged fans to donate to the One More Light Fund, which attempts to “shine a light on mental health; helping individuals and families coping with mental and emotional struggles.” The fund will also support “Chester’s favorite Music for Relief program: Solar Suitcases – solar electricity kits – for remote health clinics without electricity.” If you would like to donate to the One More Light Fund you can do so here.
