Linkin Park fans have assembled a new video in support of the group one week before the band will perform for the first time without late lead singer Chester Bennington. The clip was compiled by Linkin Park superfan Jane Kalinina, who utilized images of fellow fans from around the world holding signs of support. Kalinina wrote at YouTube, “50+ soldiers coming together to send Linkin Park a supportive and loving message before their show on October 27th. Please share this video so hopefully the guys can see it and help them feel better.”
Bennington's widow Talinda retweeted the clip, writing, "This video is amazing! They will do great!”
Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda also retweeted the video, posting, "I am so grateful for the LP fan base. Love you guys.”
