To help provide fans and friends with a centralized platform for reflection, Linkin Park have created an official page that curates social media posts in Bennington's memory. Fans from around the world have added their thoughts to the collection, including appreciations for his talents as a songwriter and vocalist, and what his music has meant to them.
His perspective in the music saved me on more than one occasion. We never got to meet, but his words will echo in me.

The band also announced they will cancel the remainder of their tour in the wake of Bennington's passing, and released an official letter in memory of their beloved band member:
"You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we've seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world," writes the band. "Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift."
