Linkin Park is now hosting a concert in Los Angeles to honor their late member Chester Bennington.

"Linkin Park is the one band who means the most to me", Logan Swinkles told Newshub.

Halfway through the concert, Shinoda sat down at the piano and recounted how he and his Linkin Park bandmates were at a photo shoot when they heard the devastating news about Bennington.

Although tickets for the one-night-only show quickly sold out, the concert is streaming live exclusively on YouTube via Linkin Park's page on Friday at 10:45 EST.

Rodgers shares new injury details during 'Conan' appearance
Rodgers went down after taking a hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr . "I looked over at [Barr] as I walked off the field". Rodgers has already been placed on injured reserve, meaning he's off the Packers active roster for at least eight weeks.

"Seeing so many fans and artists come together like that to honour his life was special".

Throughout the show, Linkin Park played old videos of Bennington, showing his sense of humor and passion for music.

Talinda said: 'He was incredibly proud of the music done through relief, he knew it saved lives.

"Saving lives is exactly what we plan to do in Chester's memory", Bennington said in a speech introducing her partnership with "Give an Hour" and Change Direction, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the conversation and culture around mental health. "It is my mission to make it easier to access mental health resources". Blink-182, who were supposed to join Linkin Park for two shows on their summer tour, performed their song "I Miss You" and LP's "What I've Done".
