Linkin Park Share Video Montage of Chester Bennington Fan Vigils From Around the World
Vigils were held everywhere from Chile to Kazakhstan.
Linkin Park have shared a moving video tribute to Chester Bennington. It pulls video from memorials from around the world, including candlelit vigils, balloon releases, flower displays, fan art, tribute shows, and more. The video just solidifies the international reach of Bennington's rock stardom—you can see fans gathering in the United States, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, Germany, Greece, Belarus, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Russia, China, Chile, France, and the Netherlands. "Thank you to our fans from around the world for your outpouring of love and support," Linkin Park wrote on Twitter and Instagram.
The band announced last month that they're working on a "special public event in Los Angeles" to pay tribute to the late frontman, who committed suicide this July. Following his spoken tribute to Bennington at the VMAs, Jared Leto recently performed a medley of just about every major artist who's died in the past two years (Bennington, David Bowie, Prince, George Michael, and Chris Cornell). You can check that out below.
