Linkin Park teases 'special event' soon to honor Chester Bennington

Linkin Park is not done yet paying tribute to its late frontman Chester Bennington. 

The band posted a new message on its social media accounts Tuesday thanking fans for their love and support since Bennington was found dead July 20 in his southern California home. He was 41.

The county coroner ruled his death a suicide by hanging. 

Bennington's Linkin Park bandmates tweeted that they are working to stage a "special public event" in Los Angeles to honor his memory, and promised to share details soon.

The five remaining members of the band also posted the message on Instagram

"The five of us are so grateful for all of your love and support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park," the message said. 

Since Bennington's death, a steady stream of tribute statements have poured forth from the band, from Bennington's widow and ex-wife, and from his friends, fans and admirers in the music world.

The band canceled its upcoming One More Light tour and organized a private funeral. Meanwhile, fans around the world organized hundreds of memorial events.

On Good Morning America, 12-year-old Toni Cornell, whose father Chris Cornell also died by suicide in May, sang Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah — the same song Bennington sang at her father's funeral — in tribute to both.
