Linkin Park have announced that they will be celebrating the life of their late vocalist Chester Bennington with a special show on October 27 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. The show will feature numerous special guests, and proceeds from the concert will go towards Music For Relief‘s “One More Light Fund” in memory of Bennington. A pre-sale will be held tomorrow (September 19), and the general public sale will start on September 22.
In other news, the band have also premiered a new video for the title track to their latest album, “One More Light.“ The band’s Joe Hahn directed the clip with videographer Mark Fiore.
Hahn said the following:
“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.”
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.”
