The latest Chester Bennington tribute came over the weekend from some of the singer’s side projects. 

Members of Dead By Sunrise and Grey Daze got together in Las Vegas on Saturday (September 2) to play a three-song acoustic set during a memorial for Bennington at Planet Hollywood’s Saxe Theater.

The musicians — Mace Beyers, Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck — played a three-song set that included “Morning After,” “The Down Syndrome” and “Let Down,” while images of Bennington were shown on a screen behind them.

Bennington worked with Grey Daze during the 90s, releasing two albums, while Dead By Sunrise came together during the mid 2000s and released one album, Out Of Ashes, in 2009.
