Bennington, who also fronted Stone Temple Pilots and Dead By Sunrise, died July 20 of suicide by hanging at his residence in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.
Viva Vision, the long-running video and music attraction running the five blocks of the FSE, is paying tribute to Bennington beginning at 9 p.m. Aug. 19. A six-minute video and music burst will play a medley of Linkin Park hits, including “In The End,” “Burn It Down” and “Numb.”
Following the Aug. 19 premiere, the video is to play each hour from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m. Aug. 20.
Viva Vision is billed as the world’s largest unbroken video screen, spanning FSE promenade 90 feet above such famous downtown Las Vegas hotels as Golden Nugget, the D Las Vegas, Fremont, Four Queens, Golden Gate, California and stopping just short of Plaza at 1 Main Street. The canopy features a 550,000-watt sound system and 12.5 million LED lights. The system was installed in December 1995 and upgraded in June 2004.
