Linkin Park, Mark Hoppus, Adrian Young Perform Together at Music for Relief Benefit

Radio.com Staff

Linkin Park performed an intimate 90-minute set Saturday at Los Angeles’ LA River Studios as part of a Music For Relief Benefit. Among the focuses of the event paying tribute to DJ/Producer Steve Aoki for his charitable work in brain science, disaster relief and animal-rights.

The nearly 6-hour event began with a silent auction followed by various performers (including our very own DJ Jeremiah Red) before a 30 minute set from Aoki and full performance from Linkin Park.

During the band’s performance Mark Hoppus, the night’s emcee, joined the band on stage with No Doubt‘s Adrian Young to perform their 2003 smash “Numb.” Thanks to Skye Hoppus,’ Mark’s wife, Hoppus can be seen playing bass and singing back-ups while Young contributes on drums.
