Linkin Park have announced a tribute show in honor of the late Chester Bennington. It will occur at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA on October 27th. All proceeds will be donated to the Music For Relief “One More Light Fund” – “supporting disaster relief and working to reduce climate change”.
In support of this, the band has also released a new music video for the track “One More Light”.
Joe Hahn had the following to say of this:
“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, likewise, had the following to say:
“‘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.”
