Linkin Park will play its first show in memory of Chester Bennington at The Hollywood Bowl on October 27.

A video of Chester Bennington taking part in Carpool Karaoke alongside his Linkin Park bandmates and U.S. comedian Ken Jeong recorded less than a week before his death has been released. The band notably recorded the episode on July 14, days before the July 20 death of singer Chester Bennington.

"With the blessings of Chester's family and his bandmates, we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester", reads a message posted onscreen before the clip begins. The video features Bennington, Linkin Park bandmates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, and actor Ken Jeong.

"It feels like a band already".

It's often hard to predict that someone will take their own life, and judging by Bennington's demeanor in this video, it's clear to see why it came as such a shock.

They kick of proceedings by singing Outkast's Hey Ya before singing their own tracks, including Numb and In The End, before upgrading to a karaoke truck where they sing Aerosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing.

"We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled".
