Fans of Linkin Park are still trying to process the devastating news that frontman Chester Bennington is dead of an apparent suicide, and video is now surfacing of the late singer’s final performance with the band.
The fan-shot video (above) was filmed from the stage-side mosh pit during the band’s July 6 show at Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England, featuring the final two songs from the concert: “Papercut”, from the band’s “Hybrid Theory” album, and “Bleed It Out”, the second single from 2007’s “Minutes to Midnight”.
Linkin Park was scheduled to resume its tour later this month in support of its latest release, “One More Light”, with the band’s upcoming Canadian dates to have included Toronto (Aug. 8), Montreal (Aug. 10) and Vancouver (Oct. 15). The band has yet to issue a statement regarding the scheduled tour dates.
Bennington, 41, was discovered dead Thursday morning after apparently hanging himself. Linkin Park co-founder Mike Shinoda addressed the sad news on Twitter, telling fans that “an official statement will come out as soon as we have one.”
