Lincoln Park is the first Linkin Park tribute band in the CIS. It was founded in May 2018, when Minsk musicians decided to make a concert in memory of Chester Bennington – the departed vocalist of Linkin Park band. The first concert of the memory took place in September 2017 in the “RE: PUBLIC” club. The concert was attended by groups with a style similar to LP, as well as those people who wanted to honor the memory of the musician.
The next successful concert was held in May 2018. Seeing the great interest of the public in such tribute concerts, the musicians decided to unite into the Lincoln Park Tribute Band project, so that the fans could have the opportunity to listen to their favorite compositions not only in audio format, but also live. The success of the past concerts left no doubt that this project should exist and that it will have a huge fan support. Thus, the May concert became the starting point for the existence of a large project called Lincoln Park Tribute Band.
The name of the new band is not accidental. This is a kind of tribute to the memory of Chester Bennington, who proposed to name the band in this way: he constantly went to the studio in Santa Monica through Lincoln Park. The rest supported his idea, but they had to give up the name, since the domain lincolnpark.com wasn’t free. Without any hesitations, the musicians simply changed a few letters, and the final name of the band was born, which became famous – Linkin Park.
The Belarusian tribute band was lucky: they had no problems with the domain lincolnpark.by, which ultimately made it possible to turn the initial idea of the leader Linkin Park into reality.
The band consists of famous musicians who have previously proven themselves in successful projects:
