Watch The Chester Bennington Tribute Concert

A celebration gig for the late Linkin Park frontman will take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles tonight.

The singer died by suicide on July 20th at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California.

Linkin Park & Friends Celebrate Life In Honor of Chester Bennington will begin at 2.45am Irish time Saturday 28 October.

It will be available to watch live on the band's official Youtube page or on demand until Monday morning.

The sold-out show will feature a farewell from his bandmates, Blink 182, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, System of a Down, Yellowcard singer William Ryan Key and solo artist Kiiara.

Proceeds from the charity concert will go to Music for Relief's One More Light Fund.

Since his death, Chester's wife Talinda Bennington has been campaigning for mental health awareness.

She released this video of her late husband, taken hours before he took his own life, as she wants people to know that 'depression doesn't have a face or a mood'.
