Ever since Chester Bennington recently committed suicide, Linkin Park has kept a low profile by refraining from public appearances or performing any shows. On Tuesday, the band announced that they are in the process of planning a tribute performance in Bennington’s hometown of Los Angeles via Twitter.
Bennington took his own life on July 20, which provoked grief for the band and fans. Linkin Park issued a statement in which they reflected on their deep denial and expressed their sorrows about the awful occurrence.
“Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled — a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing,” Linkin Park wrote. “We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal.”
In the message the band wrote on Twitter about the public even to occur in LA soon, they noted, “The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park. We are working on a special public event in Los Angeles to honor Chester’s memory and look forward to sharing details with you soon.” According to Billboard, Los Angeles is Bennington’s hometown and that this tribute would be the first venue the band would perform at together since the tragic death.
Linkin Park was supposed to go on a summer tour co-headlining with Blink 182, but the bands cancelled the tour dates after news of Bennington’s death.
Linkin Park didn’t address many details regarding the tribute at this point in time, but promised to share details soon in their Twitter message about it. SD Entertainer will let you know when the band officially announces the time and location of the tribute as soon as we know.
