Linkin Park Performs Chester Bennington Tribute Concert - Watch Now!

Watch Linkin Park's Chester Bennington tribute show livestream

On Friday, Linkin Park celebrated the life of Chester Bennington in a series of powerful performances. Since his death, tributes have been held around the world as fans came together to remember the singer, who was one of the most influential rock musicians of the 21st century.

Linkin Park performed for the first time since July, when Chester committed suicide.

Other bands on the bill included blink-182, System Of A Down and Korn's Jonathan Davis, but it was a rendition of Linkin Park's 2001 track In The End which provided the show's most poignant moment. Metallica, Paul McCartney, Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan and Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan all presented video messages.

The concert was live-streamed and the band's social media used the hashtag #MakeChesterProud.

'And that's fucked 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!

Chester's widow Talinda Bennington also stepped out onto the centre stage and spoke of how much Chester would have loved this show. "I don't know what's going to happen, but I want to keep building on it".

The three-hour concert took place on October 27 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and was live streamed on YouTube.

It's sparse, lovely, and poignant - a must-listen for Linkin Park fans and, to be honest, everyone else. The foursome performed a bass-heavy, energetic rendition of Linkin Park's "Castle of Glass", which served as a theme song for the 2012 video game, Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
