A crowd of over 17,000 gathered at the Hollywood Bowl last night (Friday, October 27, 2017) to remember and say farewell to the late Chester Bennington.
The evening was hosted by Mike Shinoda, Linkin Park’s rapper/producer, and included over a dozen big name guests (members of Blink-182, Avenged Sevenfold, System Of A Down, No Doubt, Yellowcard and Bush, just to name a few), joining the surviving band members on stage.
There were also video messages and tributes from the likes of Metallica, Paul McCartney, Guns N’ Roses, Depeche Mode and U2.
You’ll also hear heartfelt words from Chester’s widow Talinda.
The evening was also about shining the spotlight on metal health awareness.
The ‘One More Light’ fund has been set up in memory of Chester Bennington and will support Chester’s favorite Music for Relief program: Solar Suitcases (solar electricity kits) for remote health clinics without electricity.
The fund also focuses on mental health by helping individuals and families coping with mental and emotional struggles.
