Jay-Z Pays Tribute to Chester Bennington With 'Numb/Encore' at V Fest


This weekend was a big one for Jay-Z fans in the United Kingdom, as Saturday marked his only performance on British soil in 2017, taking the stage the Virgin's V Festival. Next month, JAY-Z is set to headline Philadelphia's Made In America Festival and New York's Meadows Music and Arts Festival, respectively, and the Austin City Limits Festival in October. "Can I get some lights in here for Chester tonight?.Let's show some love for Chester tonight". "Make some noise so he can hear you in heaven".

Bennington, 41, tragically took his own life at his home at his home in Palos Verdes, California, last month due to extensive battle with depression.

A second added: 'Jay-Z performing Encore/Numb as the final song in his V fest set and dedicating it to Chester was pretty special tonight'. The rapper collaborated with the frontman and Bennington's band, Linkin Park, on the 2004 EP "Collision Course", which saw the two artists mash up each other's songs. But the Roc Nation mogul made a vanglorious return to the stage with headlining performance at the 2017 V Festival in England on Saturday (Aug. 19).
