Linkin Park has announced a special show in honour of their lead singer, Chester Bennington, who committed suicide on July 20.

The one-night-only celebration will take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Friday, October 27.

According to the details provided on the band’s website, they will be joined by a number of other artists, “for an unforgettable night of music to honour the man that touched the lives of so many around the world.”

The bandmembers intend to contribute their fees from the event to Music For Relief’s One More Light Fund in memory of Chester. Pre-sale for tickets begins September 19, and general on-sale September 22.

Bennington committed suicide at age 41 on July 20. He was found hanging in his Palos Verdes, California, home. Since his death, Bennington’s family — he is survived by six children and a wife — has been outspoken on the subject of suicide.
