Linkin Park on Wednesday announced a new live album that features some of late frontman Chester Bennington’s final performances with the band. Culled from their One More Light Tour, supporting their May album of the same name, One More Light: Live draws on concerts from early summer 2017, that occurred before Bennington died on July 20 at the age of 41.
“We dedicate this live album to our brother Chester who poured his heart and soul into One More Light,” the band wrote in their announcement. “After we finished recording the album, we joked with Chester that — since he had delivered so many stunning performances in the studio — he had set the bar extra high to produce that alchemy on stage each night. Not surprisingly, he welcomed the challenge.” The band also noted that Bennington said that “he felt this was the best tour we had ever done.”
One More Light: Live contains One More Light tunes like “Heavy” and “Good Goodbye,” but also plenty of Linkin Park classics such as “In the End,” “Numb,” and “What I’ve Done.”
In late October, artists including Blink-182, Machine Gun Kelly, and Kiiara joined Linkin Park at the Hollywood Bowl for a charity gig honoring Bennington’s memory and benefitting Music For Relief’s One More Light Fund, which was established after the singer’s death.
