    Linkin Park band member Chester Bennington will be performing as part of "rock's ultimate supergroup" Kings Of Chaos, who are slated to perform three shows at House Of Blues in Las Vegas, NV, from December 1 through to December 3. As shown on the poster below (via this Facebook post), the band's current incarnation includes other famed rock musicians such as Robert DeLeo from Stone Temple Pilots, Matt Sorum from Guns N' Roses and Corey Taylor from Slipknot and Stone Sour.

    Bennington has performed with essentially all of these musicians in the past, most notably with Robert DeLeo during his brief stint as Stone Temple Pilots' frontman. This is also definitely not Bennington's first time fronting a rock supergroup, coming after countless performances throughout the years as part of similar cover acts such as Camp Freddy (later Royal Machines), Bucket Of Weenies and, most recently, The Hellcat Saints.

    Fans who attend can expect to hear plenty of classics from the individual band members' other acts, such as Stone Temple Pilots and Guns N' Roses and perhaps even Linkin Park. Additionally, Pollstar reports here that the live shows will also feature "surprise special guests".

    You can find out more about the show dates and tickets at Kings Of Chaos' official website. Tickets for the live events will become available for general sale on September 30 at 10AM PDT, and information about pre-sales for all three dates (through Live Nation and Citi) can be read below:

    From Blabbermouth's comment section: "Corey and chesty ...lame lame ,
    Get back Bach(he's on tour tho) , or a million other worthy singerS!!
    Hell, Miley Cyrus would be better!"

    And;
    "KINGS of GHEYOS"



    But seriously...... What the fuck is GHEYOS?

    I am not sure, but that sounds like a fucking homophobic idiot comment: Chaos --> Gheyos Ghey --> Gay Chaos --> Gayos

    That's pretty much what it is.

    If you check the Blabbermouth article (which I didn't use in the news post), Sorum says some things that remind me strongly of things Shinoda said in 2014 ...

    You spelled Them Crooked Vultures wrong.

    Acceptable answers would've also included the Sound City Players, A Perfect Circle, or Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

    Unless I'm mistaken, hasn't Corey Taylor openly talked about how much he dislikes Linkin Park and everything they stand for?

    Should be interesting

    I was wondering the same. But some guys said that he even complimented LP in some New Zealand shows around 2013.

    Stone Sour opened for them on the Australian dates in 2013, for what it's worth

    This is interesting news. Good to see that Chester is still passionate about performing with other rock acts. Since STP, and presumably Dead By Sunrise, are no longer a part of Chester's touring/scheduling, it makes me wonder if anything unexpected will come out of this multi-band performance, namely future collaborations.

    Also, I hope that members of bands that may have beef with other bands can finally resolve any past issues or criticisms, since they will be working together at this special event. Only time will tell, I suppose.

    No
    This whole thing has been going on for pretty much as long as LP has been around ... and it's never been true.

    I'm really looking forward to this. I want to hear what Chester and Corey sound like together. Say what you want about Slipknot and Stone Sour, but the dude's voice is fucking wild.
