Linkin Park to hold special memorial event in Los Angeles for Chester Bennington

It’s definitely been a hard month for Linkin Park, their fans and of course, Chester Bennington’s family. Though tributes have been pouring in from around the world in support of the late singer, his band is yet to come out and do something for their fallen friend.

Linkin Park bassist, David “Phoenix” Farrell posted a message on behalf of the band on social media. In it, he thanked fans for their continued support, as well made a promising announcement: Linkin Park will be hosting a memorial for Chester soon, to take place in Los Angeles. The post reads:

“Just wanted to say thank you to all our fans around the world for the tremendous outpouring of love, which has strengthened our spirit during this incredibly difficult time.”

“The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park.”

“We are working on a special public event in Los Angeles to honor Chester’s memory, and look forward to sharing details with you soon.”

“Peace and love, Phoenix and Linkin Park”

This is a little bit of hope for fans, to know that the band isn’t thinking of disbanding yet, though it will be really difficult to fill the void that Chester has left.

Rapper Jay-Z also remembered his former collaborator when he performed their hit, Numb/Encore at a recent concert. He encouraged those present to “please make some noise so he can hear you all the way to heaven tonight.”

Chester Bennington took his own life on July 20 at his home in Palos Verdes, California. Linkin Park had just released their album, One More Light and were set to go on tour. Chester was buried at the Botanical Garden near his home with a funeral service that resembled a typical Linkin Park concert, including wrist bands and VIP passes.
