[BREAKING] Chester Bennington Last Performance

Linkin Park 的 Chester Bennington 逝世,終年只有41歲。據TMZ報導,他在洛杉磯的私人公寓中自殺,遺體在香港時間昨晚被發現。巧合地今天也是他的好友、在上月自殺的 Soundgarden / Audioslave 主將 Chris Cornell 的53歲生忌。片段拍攝於 Linkin Park 在英國伯明翰的最後演唱會,Chester跳到人群前以半acoustic的形式唱出Crawling,當時每一個人也顯得非常感動。

More information on the tragedy – Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington was found hanged aged 41. According to TMZ, the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Los Angeles. His body was reportedly discovered Thursday morning just before 9am. Today would also have been his close friend, Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday.

Here’s Chester’s final performance at Birmingham that will definitely make you cry…

// …The almost sold-out show has attracted long queue of fans before door opened which is very rare in Hong Kong. Many of them have put on tour t-shirts from WSS’ previous tour. It’s like seeing 3 short generation of While She Sleeps fans at once. The night happened to be the day after Chester Bennington’s suicide, so many people also put on Linkin Park’s tee as tribute…//
