Bush, Stone Temple Pilots, and The Cult recently kicked off the Revolution 3 tour, and at a show in Noblesville, Indiana, Bush honored Chester Bennington, who sang for Stone Temple Pilots and Linkin Park. The one year anniversary of Bennington’s death was a couple of days ago, and his photo was shown before “Glycerine” was performed. STP also dedicated their set to Chester.
Gavin Rossdale wrote on Instagram, “Celebrating Chester ❤️.”
Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo posted a previously unseen photo with Chester to mark the anniversary.
He also wrote about the tour, “Having fun @stpband @bushofficialinstagram and @officialcult on #revolution3tour.”
You can watch videos below as well from STP in Noblesville, along with Bush’s tribute to Chester Bennington. Chester Bennington died by suicide on July 20, 2017.
Gavin Rossdale said last year, “Very painful because I care so much about, feel for anyone, anyone’s family, any people that are going through someone’s suicide. Chester was a great great guy, huge family, extremely successful, very very talented musician, great singer. He’s one of our own, it’s a community, so I just feel for him so much, the same way I felt for Chris Cornell, contemporaries who I know and respect.
I can’t say [I was] best friends with them, but I certainly respected and loved their bands.”
