Surviving members of Linkin Park reunite for tribute concert in honor of Chester Bennington: Video + Setlist

on October 28, 2017, 1:55pm

Three months after Chester Bennington’s tragic passing, the surviving members of Linkin Park reunited for a tribute concert in honor of their late frontman. Taking place at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday night and streaming live online, the three-hour concert saw Linkin Park joined on stage by a number of special guests, including members of Blink-182, System of a Down, and No Doubt, as well as Alanis Morissette and Bush’s Gavin Rossdale, among many others.

“Doing this show is one of the hardest things we ever decided to do,” Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda told the crowd shortly after the band took the stage. There were several noteworthy moments right from the concert’s onset, including the live debut of “Roads Untraveled” and an instrumental performance of “Numb” which saw the crowd sing the entirety of Bennington’s lyrics.

Rossdale sang lead on “Leave Out All the Rest”; Adrian Young, Tom Dumont and Tony Kanal of No Doubt took the stage alongside Alanis Morissette to perform “Castle of Glass”, which was followed by the debut of a new song written by Morissette called “Rest”; Shinoda also debuted a new song in tribute to Bennington called “Looking for an Answer”, which was written in the wake of the singer’s death; Daron Malakian and Shavo Odadjian of System of a Down and Frank Zummo of Sum 41 performed “Rebellion” and “The Catalyst”; and Blink-182 performed their own “I Miss You” as well as “What I’ve Done”. At the end of the main set, Bennington’s wife, Talinda Bennington, gave a speech thanking the band and its fans.

You can replay the concert in full up above, and see the full setlist below. Proceeds from the concert benefited the One More Light Fund for mental health awareness.
