A Linkin Park-Themed Fundraiser For Pieta House Will Take Place At Fibbers Next Week

James Fenton

The music world was stunned last week at the sudden and tragic loss of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington in Los Angeles. 

The band have always had a loyal following here in Ireland and a lot of people have been touched by the death of the 41-year-old.

It’s been announced that a fundraiser will be held at Fibber Magee’s on Parnell Street in aid of suicide charity Pieta House. 

The event will take the form of a singalong based on the group’s iconic album Hybrid Theory.

According to the Facebook event page for ‘Hybrid Theory SIngalong For Pieta House’:

“Linkin Park are a band that meant so much to so many of us during our formative years. Hybrid Theory in particular had a a near permanent residency on our CD players (remember those?) and seeing the videos for Crawling, Papercut and In The End on Kerrang every 20 minutes was something of a rite of passage for anyone lucky enough to have the channels back in the day! 

This singalong will be a chance for us to say goodbye to Chester and raise a toast to the impact Hybrid Theory has had on us. It’s a singalong. We’ll be playing Hybrid Theory from start to finish and we want to encourage everyone to sing and shout along to their heart’s content. We know all the words, let’s sing them together. 

All proceeds from the night will go directly to Pieta House.

Pieta House provide a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm. In what could be seen a mental health crisis in Ireland, Pieta House have taken up the mantle as the first and last lines of defense for a lot of people, it’s important we support them.”

Over 1,000 people have already clicked ‘interested’ on the event which takes place on Thursday August 3 starting at 8pm. Tickets cost €5 and you can check out more information here
