  • Linkin Park To Play Chester Bennington Tribute Concert Tonight at Hollywood Bowl

Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda has unveiled a new song in honour of Chester Bennington, titled "Looking For An Answer".

He said it "was by pure fate" the concert happened to be on the first night of his American holiday, and he knew he "had to be there".

Bennington and the rest of Linkin Park began the charity Music for Relief following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and the One More Light Fund was established after Bennington's death.

Linkin Park have paid tribute to Chester. And saving lives is exactly what we plan to do in Chester's memory. "It is my mission to make it easier to access mental health resources".

The new initiative is called 320, after Chester's birthday, March 20.

The band is billing the show as "an unforgettable night of music to honor the man who touched the lives of so many around the world". More information as to what the initiative will do, Bennington said, will be coming "soon". The sadness lifted a bit for the more rousing "Somewhere I Belong", during which Takahiro Moriuchi of Japanese band One Ok Rock absolutely nailed both the song and the energy of it.

There were the professional singers, and then there were the amateurs - all 17,500 of them - packed into the Hollywood Bowl, stretching from the box seats into the nosebleeds.

Mike Shinoda was able to complete his part of the song, but he needed a little help.so the crowd filled in with Chester's bit.
