This is SO moving.
On Friday night at the Hollywood Bowl in El Lay, Linkin Park performed for the first time since Chester Bennington‘s suicide in July, and they made sure he was front and center in their minds and hearts during the powerful, emotional evening.
Mike Shinoda performed Looking for an Answer, which you can watch (above), during the concert and left barely a dry eye in the house as the group honored Bennington’s memory.
Other artists were in the building, too — including Blink-182, Machine Gun Kelly, System of a Down, and No Doubt — but Shinoda and Linkin Park stole the show with their powerful tribute and lasting legacy.
The night was all set up in Chester’s honor, with performers donating their fees to Music For Relief‘s One More Light fund, which had initially been set up as a charity in Chester’s honor.
Here’s more from Linkin Park, posted not long before their show last night (below):

So, so emotional and powerful.
Well done all around by Linkin Park — meaningful, and authentic, and real.
R.I.P., Chester — you are very much missed by friends, family, fans, and loved ones.
