Linkin Park has announced a special show to honor late singer Chester Bennington. She single-night show will take place at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 27, 2017.
The show will be the first in which the band plays together since Bennington’s death in July. Linkin Park’s website states, “The band will be joined by a number of other artists, for an unforgettable night of music to honor the man who touched the lives of so many around the world.”
The band members also plan to donate their fees from the show to Music For Relief’s One More Light Fund in memory of Bennington.
The band also released an official video for “One More Light,” the titular song of Linkin Park’s latest album, released in May. The video was directed by Joe Hahn, member of Linkin Park, and was created after Bennington’s death.
“It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it. 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.”
