Answering to a fan's commentary on Instagram, Chester revealed that a Grey Daze reunion will be happening later this year.

For those who don't remember (or simply don't know), Grey Daze was Chester's band before he joined Linkin Park. Our staff member Lestat has a full Grey Daze Story detailing the history of the band and more for fans to read.

 

Chester left the band due to internal conflicts and the feeling they were going nowhere following a series of unsuccessful showcases in Southern California sometime in mid-1998. The band had a reunion show scheduled for September 07, 2002 as a benefit for Bobby Benish, the former Grey Daze member who was having difficulty paying his medical bills since being diagnosed with a brain tumor. Unfortunately, the show had to be cancelled due to Chester's commitment with Linkin Park and Bobby Benish eventually passed away.

 

 

Now, 15 years later, seems like we are finally seeing that Grey Daze reunion show. The details are still unknown at this point. We don't know if this will be a one time event, if they are only playing a couple of shows or if they are planning on recording new music, but this is certainly exciting news for fans of the group.

 

UPDATE: It appears that the band will reunite for one show (and possibly two) for the anniversary of Club Tattoo. The confirmed show seems to be at the Marquee Theater in Tempe, Arizona and will likely happen between August and October. A second show is being considered for Las Vegas. The lineup will feature Chester, Mace Beyers (bass), Sean Dowdell (drums), and Jason Barnes (guitar). More information should come during the summer. Sean and Mace have both confirmed that the event will be happening, as well.

 

Be sure to check out our extensive Grey Daze Story to learn more about the band.

And we have a huge list of Grey Daze shows for you to check out as well.

Freakin Hype!!! Hope the show will be streamed or at least recorded.


If you think there's nothing wrong with it (environment) so we won't do anything about it. That's like saying that my house is completely clean, so I'm not gonna clean it

I can't hold on, it's all too much to take in. I can't hold on, with thoughts of failure sinking in.

Rest in peace Chester Bennington, my favourite vocalist and a huge inspiration.

I feel like there's probably a 98% chance this never actually happens.

In before WBR / LP mgmt says Chester can't do it.


'What I've Done' is probably from 4 different shows and they just forced in the foreign language thing to fuck with us

Never knew they actually tried to make a show in 2002, I get why cause they were making Meteora but still, that was a dick move by them. I'm sure their mgmt changed over time right? There's no way they're gonna tell them no again.

back in 2002 but LP was the hottest band in the world of course Warner wanted to have Chester fully commited to Meteora they needed that album ASAP.

 

Right now they are slowly becoming a legacy act, if WB didn't have any problem w/ STP, KoC, CF I don't see why Grey Daze could be.

Management has blocked Sean's efforts to re-release Grey Daze material as recently as 2007 though. It's always seemed like they want to sweep the fact that Chester was in a band before LP under the rug.
