Linkin Park is hosting a tribute concert on Friday in honor of late singer Chester Bennington. Watch the live stream below.

As Gossip Cop reported, in July Bennington was found dead of an apparent suicide at the age of 41. His death came on the same day his close friend Chris Cornell, who died earlier this year, would have turned 53. In addition to six children and various other loved ones, Bennington left behind five devoted band mates: Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Joseph Hahn, Rob Bourdon and Dave Farrell. Following his shocking passing, the group canceled its “One More Light Tour” and largely retreated from the spotlight.

It was a few days before Linkin Park collectively released a statement. They then started the One More Light Fund in Bennington’s memory, founding the organization to raise awareness about mental illness. Fan-driven memorials sprang up across the globe, and in late August, the band announced the tribute concert, which marks their first performance since Bennington’s death. The event comes shortly after the release of Linkin Park’s “Carpool Karaoke” installment for Apple Music, which was filmed just days before the singer died.

The show, called “Linkin Park and Friends Celebrate Life in Honor of Chester Bennington,” is taking place at the Hollywood Bowl. The group partnered with YouTube so that fans around the world will be able to watch. While the concert is expected to feature a number of special guest artists, the specific set list has been kept under wraps. Shinoda tweeted on Wednesday, “Busy week preparing for this.” And hours before the event, Farrell took to Instagram to share a message with the “worldwide community of friends and fans of Linkin Park.”

Alongside a photo of mementos and treats, he wrote, “I continue to be overwhelmed by the love and support you have extended to me and the band over the past few months. This came this morning from the Executive Pastry Chef at the hotel Where I’m staying. To all of you who have been so thoughtful, gracious, and kind, I wish there was a better, or more sincere way to say ‘thank you…’

He went on, “Grief comes in waves. There are stretches of time that feel normal, happy, and peaceful. There are stretches that carry an underlying, dull pain. Today feels different. It hurts. It’s a sharper pain than what I’ve become used to, a larger wave. I don’t know what to expect tonight, but I know that it’s significant. It’s a marker of sorts in my life… a night I will always remember.”

“This evening I invite you all to laugh with us, cry with us, look back at the good times we’ve all shared, look forward to the good times ahead, and Celebrate Life,” Farrell concluded, adding, “Thank You All For All Your Kindness.” The live stream is slated to start at 10:30 p.m. Eastern.
