Linkin Park has just revealed who will be leading the iconic band in the upcoming tribute concern for Chester Bennington, the band’s former frontman.
Together with Linkin Park are other names from across various music genres, all set to sing with the band in their first appearance since Bennington’s passing last July.
Announced so far are members of various metal and rock bands such as: Oli Sykes (Bring Me The Horizon), Jonathan Davis (Korn), Daron Malakian, John Dolmayan, and Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down), Synyster Gate and M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold).
Others include Kiiara (who fans can remember also offered her voice for “Heavy,” another Linkin Park single), former Yellowcard Ryan Key, Blink-182, and Machine Gun Kelly.
All these huge names will be joining Linkin Park in the one-night concert on Oct. 27, in the tribute titled “Linkin Park And Friends Celebrate Life In Honor Of Chester Bennington.” More details are yet to be revealed, however it is sure to be a huge concert.
Perhaps what is more amazing is that all the funding that will be raised during the event are set to be donated to a fund in honor of Bennington, which is the “One More Light Fund” under Music for Relief. This is named after one of Linkin Park’s more recent songs, “One More Light,” which Bennington also sang.
