The band held a special tribute concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday night (October 27), following the death of frontman Chester Bennington who tragically took his own life, aged 41, back in July. His wife Talinda Bennington told those in attendance that her husband would have loved the spirit of the evening.

A almost three-hour long musical tribute to Bennington then ensued, featuring performances from Blink-182, Alanis Morissette, Avenged Sevenfold, No Doubt, Sum 41's Deryck Whibley and many more. "He was incredibly proud of the work done for Music For Relief".

"I know it's going to be a rollercoaster of emotion, but when we talk about this, when we're focusing on the show, it's really about celebrating life", Bennington's longtime bandmate Mike Shinoda said of the tribute concert in an interview on KROQ. "It is my mission to make it easier for people to have access to mental health resources". "I don't think any of us do".

Gavin Rossdale, Alanis Morrisette, Zedd and Blink-182 also performed at the concert for the One More Light Fund.
