Own a part of Linkin Park history

Nostalgia, it has a place in all of our hearts. A simple smell, an image, a sound is enough to transport us from wherever we are to wherever we were when a connection was made. There are personal nostalgias that only one or a finite group of individuals will understand and then there are generational nostalgias that bring us together, especially during times of hardship and loss. A whole generation mourned the passing of Linkin Park’s lead singer Chester Bennington, a loss that is still being felt. Today the band are giving the fans who have supported them for years a chance to own a part of their history by donating over 200 items to be auctioned.

Reverb.com and LA’s Techno Empire have gathered together a mass amount of Linkin Park gear and are putting it up for public sale with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Music For Relief, a charity set up by the band. Music For Relief was founded in 2005 in response to the Indian Ocean tsunami and is made up of a variety of musicians, music professionals and fans providing aid to survivors of natural disasters. Linkin Park have always expressed their overwhelming gratitude towards the support they receive from their fans in relation to their music but also for causes such as this and see this opportunity as a way of giving back. The items being auctioned consist of instruments used by the band, tour gear, stickers, mixing equipment and any and everything that could be considered a dream by a Linkin Park fan.

Whilst the future of Linkin Park as a band is uncertain there is no doubt about the legacy of their past and the immense opportunity that is being given to own even just a part of that.
