Linkin Park Fittingly Dedicate 'One More Light' Performance to Chris Cornell on 'Kimmel'

Linkin Park were the musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to promote their new album with the news of Chris Cornell's unexpected passing influencing their set.

"We were going to come out and play [new single] 'Heavy' first, but in light of our dear friend Chris Cornell passing away, we decided to play our song 'One More Light' in honor of him to start this off," singer Chester Bennington told the audience, before adding, "We love you, Chris" and launching into the fitting tribute track.

Bennington has been particularly rocked by losing his friend Cornell, sharing an open letter on Instagram on Thursday, May 18, when news hit that the grunge icon had passed. He wrote, "I'm still weeping, with sadness, as well as gratitude for having shared some very special moments with you and your beautiful family" among other touching thoughts.

Watch the performance above and then lash back to Chester telling Fuse all about his tattoos:
