Linkin Park's highly anticipated Chester Bennington tribute show is coming up this Friday, Oct. 27. In preparation for the event, which will stream online for free, musical guest Matt Skiba of Blink-182 and Alkaline Trio is prepping for his part in the concert. Check out a vid of Skiba learning an LP song below!
In addition to Skiba, members of Korn, System Of A Down, Bring Me The Horizon, Avenged Sevenfold, Yellowcard and Machine Gun Kelly will perform in the Linkin Park And Friends Celebrate Life In Honor Of Chester Bennington concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Friday.
As noted by Loudwire, Blink-182 guitarist Skiba's recent Instagram video appears to show the musician learning Linkin Park's “What I've Done” (perhaps transposed in a different key) with his guitar technician helping out.
Skiba's caption reads: “Learning some Linkin Park tunes with my guitar guru Danny Lohner for the upcoming event at Hollywood Bowl with Blink-182 and lots of other artists in honor and in loving memory of our buddy Chester.”
Linkin Park first announced the tribute show back in September—it will be the first time the band have performed since Bennington's unexpected death in July, after canceling their scheduled U.S. tour and Japan appearances.
