With the fate of Linkin Park still up in the air since the death of Chester Bennington, the surviving members have announced a one-night-only concert to celebrate the life of the frontman.

Set to take place on Oct. 27 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the band’s Facebook post explains the band will be joined by an unspecified number of guests to help create an “unforgettable night of music to honor the man that touched the lives of so many around the world.”

Tickets will be available for purchase on Friday, Sept. 22, while members of the rock band’s fan club LP Underground will have access to tickets starting Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Along with the concert announcement, the band also shared the music video for “One More Light,” the title track off their most recent album. Directed by Linkin Park member Joe Hahn and videographer Mark Fiore, the video includes an assortment of professional, behind-the-scenes, and fan footage of Bennington through his years in the band.

“It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it,” Hahn wrote in the YouTube description. “I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people that need it. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people that connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people that want that connection.”

“One More Light was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone,” band member Mike Shinoda added. “We now find ourselves on the receiving end. In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.”
