If there ever needed to be a moment that reminded people that Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington was one-of-a-kind, it was Friday night at the Hollywood Bowl.

A sold-out crowd turned out to cheer on the surviving members of the band as they took the stage for the very first time since Bennington took his own life on July 20 at his home in Palos Verdes Estates. The evening was the celebration of life that the band – keys player and vocalist Mike Shinoda, drummer Rob Bourdon, DJ Joe Hahn and bassists Brad Delson and Dave Farrell – promised fans it would deliver.

“I don’t have the words … I don’t think any of us do, to thank you guys for coming,” Shinoda told the crowd.
