Machine Gun Kelly paid tribute to the late Chester Bennington during his concert at the OVO Arena at Wembley in London this weekend.
The ‘more than life’ star looked visibly emotional as he recalled the last time he saw the Linkin Park frontman in Europe, before his shock suicide in July 2017 aged 41.
He told the sold-out crowd at his ‘Mainstream Sellout’ concert on Saturday night (01.10.22): ‘We had a tour that we were about to start and three days before we started that tour Chester died .
“The last time I saw him was here in Europe so I encourage you, because life is short, to go and live this life, I know it’s hard, but nights like this make life worth living.
“I hope when you leave here you find more nights like this and live this short life. I love you so much.”
Meanwhile, the rap rocker – whose real name is Colson Baker – has some special surprises in store for fans with the ‘Dirt’ star joined on stage by London rap legend Skepta, 40, for a rendition of ‘ Praise the Lord” by the MC, his song with A$AP Rocky.
And fellow rocker Yungblud, 25, came out to perform “Acting Like That” and “I Think I’m Okay.”
MGK – whose actress fiancee Megan Fox joined him on the ride – recently shared that this is the first European tour for his 13-year-old daughter Casie.
He captioned an Instagram carousel of the trip so far: “This is my daughter’s first European tour. (sic)”
The tour continues at the Utilita Arena in Birmingham on Tuesday evening (04.10.22).
MGK – who was just 18 when Casie was born to him and ex-girlfriend Emma Cannon – often takes the teenager to events with him as his plus one.
