Linkin Park To Honor Chester Bennington With Public Memorial

The popular rock group announced that they're organizing a memorial for their late bandmate Chester Bennington.

In a statement posted on Twitter on Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2017, Linkin Park bassist Dave Phoenix Farrell wrote, "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," the statement continued. "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."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Bennington died on July 20, 2017. It was later determined that the singer had committed suicide by hanging. He was 41 years old.

Days after Bennington's death, Linkin Park released a statement, saying, "Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened. You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized."
