The Los Angeles Times reports that the surviving members of Linkin Park will hold a tribute show to late frontman Chester Bennington, who passed away in July. The concert happens at the Hollywood Bowl on October 27. A lineup hasn’t been revealed, but it will include several artists who knew Bennington or were influenced by him. They will donate their performance fees to Music for Relief’s One More Light Fund to honor Bennington. A pre-sale begins today and regular tickets go on sale Friday.

This comes after the band released a new video for their song “One More Light,” which shows the band’s history and Bennington’s positive impact.

The video’s director and band founder Joe Hahn said: “It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it. I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people who need it. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people who connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of goodwill to the people who want that connection.
