Linkin Park Planning 'Special Public Event' in Los Angeles to Tribute Chester Bennington

Linkin Park is getting ready to give fans the opportunity to salute its fallen vocalist. 

On Tuesday (Aug. 22) the band shared its intention to memorialize Chester Bennington in its home city, presumably in the near future.  

“The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park,” the social media note reads. “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.”

Linkin Park has not performed since Bennington committed suicide on July 20 and has kept a decidedly low profile, subtly paying its respects as necessary. The new message suggests the five remaining members may be planning some sort of live performance, or at least a public appearance in Bennington’s memory.

Linkin Park had been scheduled for a summer co-headlining tour with Blink-182, though both bands canceled those dates following Bennington’s death.
