Jay-Z Honors Chester Bennington At UK Concert

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) JAY-Z paid homage to the late Chester Bennington Saturday by performing "Numb" at a UK concert.
JAY and Linkin Park have history ... they re-did the band's hit "Numb" back in 2004, so the mogul had reason to pick that song out to honor his good friend, who committed suicide a month ago today.

Nearly three years since the "On the Run Tour," JAY-Z made a triumphant return to the stage during one of two headlining sets at this year's V Festival in England on Saturday (Aug. 19), his only European show of 2017.
Performing at Staffordshire's Weston Park, the Roc Nation mogul performed tracks off his critically-acclaimed 13th studio album 4:44 for the first time, including "Kill Jay Z" and "The Story of O.J."

Backed by a 40-foot-tall, metallic Jeff Koons inflatable dog, Shawn Carter also delivered time-tested classics like "99 Problems," "Empire State of Mind," and "Lucifer."

Just one month after Chester Bennington's tragic death, JAY offered a tribute to his late collaborator before performing their Collision Course mash-up "Numb/Encore" as his finale.
"Can you guys light it up for Chester from Linkin Park one time tonight?" he asked. "Please make some noise so he can hear you all the way in heaven tonight."

On Oct. 27, Hov is set to launch his "4:44 Tour" in Anaheim, Calif. From there, he will continue across North America before ending the trek on Dec. 21 in Los Angeles.
