Watch Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda debut Chester Bennington tribute song

The sold-out show will feature a farewell from his bandmates, Blink 182, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, System of a Down, Yellowcard singer William Ryan Key and solo artist Kiiara.

He added on Twitter, "We will be playing, laughing, and crying together at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 27th, in honor of Chester".

The band's frontman passed away in July at the age of 41 after taking his own life.

Since his death, Chester's wife Talinda Bennington has been campaigning for mental health awareness.

On Friday, Linkin Park celebrated the life of Chester Bennington in a series of powerful performances.

"Doing this show is one of the hardest things I think that we've ever made a decision to do", said Mike Shinoda.

"Our special guest on this one is our favourite special guest of the whole night", he said. And that's fucked up to say because of all these great people that have come out tonight, and if I say that, then that makes them look bad. "Love you guys", bandmate Mike Shinoda wrote in a Twitter post last month.

Well done all around by Linkin Park - meaningful, and authentic, and real.

Linkin Park's members plan to donate their fees from the gig to Music For Relief's One More Light Fund.
