Linkin Park announced last week that Chester Bennington‘s tribute concert will be taking place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 27th, and now we know who else will be in attendance that night. Avenged Sevenfold‘s M. Shadows and Synyster Gates, Korn‘s Jonathan Davis, System Of A Down‘s Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan, plus members of Blink-182, Bring Me The Horizon, and Yellowcard are all confirmed to be performing with the band, along with the likes of Ryan Key, Machine Gun Kelly and Kiiara.
Linkin Park‘s vocalist Mike Shinoda said this on the tribute show, “We haven’t gone out together in public, we haven’t played — we haven’t gone on stage… I know that for some of the guys in the band, getting on stage is more scary than for other guys in the band, but I will say that for all of us, it’s definitely the thing that we want to do. It feels like the right way to celebrate Chester. I know that the circumstances of his passing were really dark, and as we said at the time, the darkness that he had was always there and was kind of part of the package, but what was so unique and special about this guy is that he used it as fuel to do so many positive things… He was such a happy guy, he was such a fun guy. When he’d walk in the room, there was such a positive, funny, upbeat energy, and that’s what we wanna get out of this show.”
