It’s been a month since we lost Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, and in that month, the band has been relatively quiet. After releasing a statement back in July, the band has now issued another statement on Twitter.

Linkin Park wrote to thank fans for all of the support following Bennington’s death, mentioning healing and building LP’s future. They continued, saying they’ve got a “special public event” coming to Los Angeles in honor of their late bandmate.

More details are yet to come, but you can read the full statement below.

Bennington was pronounced dead at 41 after his body was discovered in his Los Angeles Home on July 20. As such, the scheduled co-headlining tour with Blink-182 was canceled.

So if this “special public event” is some sort of tribute performance, this could be the band’s first performance since Bennington’s death.
