Linkin Park played a one-night-only concert in tribute to late lead singer Chester Bennington on Friday.

The show took place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. It was the first time that Linkin Park performed since Bennington's July 20 death.

Warner Bros. says individual band members intend to contribute their fees from the show to Music For Relief in memory of Bennington.

The band has also released its video for "One More Light," the title track from its latest album. The video features Bennington singing and archive footage.

The band's co-vocalist Mike Shinoda said in a statement that the song is about "sending love to those who lost someone."

Bennington was found dead in July on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his friend and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who hanged himself in May. Bennington's death was ruled a suicide.
