Watch JAY-Z Honour Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington With ‘Numb/Encore’ Tribute

Rapper and Linkin Park collaborator JAY-Z has paid tribute to the band’s late frontman Chester Bennington during a performance at V Festival in Staffordshire, England.

“Can you guys light it up tonight for Chester, Linkin Park one time tonight?” JAY-Z can be seen asking the crowd in the video below.

“Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight.”

JAY-Z goes on to perform ‘Numb/Encore’, a collaborative track he and Linkin Park released on the band’s 2004 album Collision Course.

Since footage of the performance has made its way online, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has taken to Twitter to thank JAY-Z for his tribute, saying, “We appreciate you.”

Watch the tribute below.

Chester Bennington died in July, and has since been the focus of other musical tributes from the likes of Coldplay, Machine Gun Kelly and Stone Sour.
