Watch Linkin Park And Friends Celebrate Chester Bennington At The Hollywood Bowl

"Linkin Park is the one band who means the most to me", Logan Swinkles told Newshub.

Video clips of Bennington, who died on July 20, were also highlighted during the concert.

Other bands on the bill included blink-182, System Of A Down and Korn's Jonathan Davis, but it was a rendition of Linkin Park's 2001 track In The End which provided the show's most poignant moment. The evening was the celebration of life that the band - keys player and vocalist Mike Shinoda, drummer Rob Bourdon, DJ Joe Hahn and bassists Brad Delson and Dave Farrell - promised fans it would deliver.

His bandmates held a memorial concert in his honour at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl last night. Others, like Sum 41's Deryck Whibley and One Ok Rock's Takahiro Moriuchi, were natural fits for Bennington's anguished/angelic vocals on "The Catalyst" and "Somewhere I Belong", respectively.

It's sparse, lovely, and poignant - a must-listen for Linkin Park fans and, to be honest, everyone else. More information as to what the initiative will do, Bennington said, will be coming "soon". Shinoda performed the song solo, accompanied only by piano.

"Doing this show is one of the hardest things I think that we've ever made a decision to do", said Mike Shinoda.

"If we do continue, I want to build on this". "It is my mission to make it easier to have access to mental health resources".
