The 41-year-old musician took to the stage at Leeds Festival on Sunday (26.08.18) to pay tribute to the ‘Numb’ group’s late frontman Chester Bennington – who tragically took his own life last July – and he also revealed that he’s been discussing what their plans for the future are shaping up like, though nothing has been set in stone yet.
The Fort Minor star told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “We’ve been talking. As soon as there’s something to announce, we’ll announce it.” Mike remembered Chester – who was just 41 when he died – as he joined pop-punk stars Sum 41 on stage for the second time, after appearing at sister festival Reading the day before, for a performance of ‘Faint’.
The amazing moment came on the same afternoon he led the audience through an emotional solo rendition of ‘In The End’, with the crowd singing Chester’s parts. The late frontman’s influence was clear throughout at the festival, as The Pit headliners Papa Roach also performed part of the song during their own show.
