The rock band shared a special message on social media on Tuesday, thanking fans for their continued support and announcing a public event in Los Angeles in honor of their late frontman. 

"Just wanted to say thank you to all our fans around the world for the tremendous outpouring of love, which has strengthened our spirit during this incredibly difficult time," the statement began. "The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of Linkin Park."

"We are working on a special public event in Los Angeles to honor Chester's memory, and look forward to sharing details with you soon," bandmate Phoenix wrote on behalf of the band.  

Bennington, 41, was found dead in his home outside Los Angeles on July 20. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging. Since his death, thousands of fans and artists around the world have paid tribute to the fallen singer with murals created in cities from Los Angeles to Kiev, Ukraine. 

JAY-Z, who collaborated with Linkin Park on the 2004 album Collision Course, dedicated some touching words to Bennington on Saturday night during his performance at the V Festival.

"Can you guys light it up for Chester? Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way up in heaven tonight," the rapper told the crowd before rapping "Encore/Numb."
