Linkin Park fans sing along to 'Numb' at Chester Bennington memorial concert

On Friday (27 October), Linkin Park regrouped to pay tribute to Chester Bennington at a memorial concert attended by thousands of fans.

Performing at the Hollywood Bowl, the band invited multiple artists to perform alongside them, including members of Blink-182, System Of A Down and Korn. One performance, however, stood out in particular.

“Our special guest on this one is our favourite special guest of the whole night,” Mike Shinoda said, introducing the track “In The End” from the 2001 album Hybrid Theory.

“And that’s f**ked-up to say because of all these great people that have come out tonight, and if I say that, then that makes them look bad! But I do mean our favourite guests – it’s you guys.”

Launching into the song, Shinoda encouraged the audience to perform Bennington’s vocals, leading to an emotional high-point for the evening.

The whole concert was live-streamed online, “In The End” coming around the 2:28:00 mark.

Linkin Park donated their fees from the performance to Music for Relief's One More Light Fund, set up in Bennington’s memory.
