Just over a month following the tragic death of Chester Bennington, the surviving members of Linkin Park have released a statement, thanking their fans for their support, along with confirming that they’re working on a memorial “special public event” to honour the late frontman.
Bennington took his own life, and was found dead in his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California on July 20th 2017 from suicide by hanging.
The band issued their statement via their social channels, which reads as follows.
“Just wanted to say thank you to all our fans around the world for the tremendous outpouring of love, which has strengthened our spirit during this incredibly difficult time.
The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park.
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.
Peace and love,
Phoenix and Linkin Park”
Since his untimely passing, many musicians and artists from across their world have paid tribute to Bennington, including Jay Z, Coldplay, Korn, Stone Sour, Sylar, and Motionless In White to name a few.
At the time of writing it’s unsure as to exactly what this event will be, whether it be some form of benefit show in aid of suicide prevention and awareness, or something else entirely, but we will confirm as and when news develops on this.
