While the music world still tries to cope with the sudden and tragic death of Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, fans and musicians are pouring in tributes. Bennington put his heart, soul and battle with depression into his vulnerable lyrics, making his suicide all the more tragic.
The group’s last performance with Bennington went down at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England on July 6th. Fan-shot footage showed the frontman doing what he does best, getting as close to the crowd as possible and getting face to face with fans. They perform “Papercut” from Hybrid Theoryand “Bleed It Out” from 2007’s Minutes to Midnight. Watch the clip below.
Rest in peace, Chester.
