    Linkin Park announce a special show in honor of Chester. The one-night-only celebration will take place in Los Angeles at the legendary Hollywood Bowl on Friday, October 27, 2017. The band will be joined by a number of other artists, for an unforgettable night of music to honor the man that touched the lives of so many around the world.

    Public on-sale starts Friday, September 22nd at 10 am Los Angeles time on Ticketmaster: http://lprk.co/oct27

    LP Underground members have access to pre-sale tickets starting Tuesday, September 19th at 12 pm Los Angeles time. Details: http://lprk.co/lputix

    Mike Shinoda was also on KROQ this morning to give the first interview from the band since Chester's passing. Check out the interview below where Mike discusses the tribute show, the fans and the song One More Light.


    No other details have been released at this point about the show but it's safe to assume that Linkin Park will perform with a number of other artists and bands that knew and were touched by Chester for what will make an emotional tribute. Do you plan on attending this tribute show? Let us know on the forums.

    I hope it will be live streamed or at least we'll be able to see a recording afterwards. I can't even imagine how hard it will be to see only five of them on stage :(

    They should stream this. I would pay to watch this on HBO or whatever platform of their choosing.

    I wonder who the artists would be. I assume Julien K, Machine Gun Kelly, STP, Stormzy (maybe?), Blackbird

    This.

    Is there any information on how much tickets will cost? I'm curious if it is worth the cross country flight.

    For anyone interested, there are 2 promotional items on the Linkin Park web store pertaining to this event. A shirt and a zip hoodie.

    Grey Daze definitely. Tom Morello, I doubt.
    Jay Z, Rakim maybe?
    Lupe Fiasco?

    Oh and definitely, DEFINITELY, Steve Aoki.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Aaron Lewis and/or Corey Taylor are a part of this. Possibly JD, too.

    So glad the band is doing this. I hope I get tickets tomorrow, I should be in group 1, and hopefully ticketmaster doesn't fuck up this presale like they did the last one. I think for everyone who can't make it they'll stream it or record and release a blu ray with all proceeds benefiting the One More Light Foundation

    Can't make it with work and school plus I'm already trying to put together a trip to L.A. to watch the Texans play the Rams in November. Like everyone who won't be there, I hope they live stream the event.
