Fibbers on Parnell Street are dedicating a night to the band’s debut album, ‘Hybrid Theory’.

A DJ will play the diamond album from start to finish, allowing fans “to sing and shout along to their heart's content” to the songs from the childhood.

“Linkin Park are a band that meant so much to so many of us during our formative years. Hybrid Theory in particular had a near permanent residency on our CD players (remember those?),” organisers have said on their eventbrite page.

“This singalong will be a chance for us to say goodbye to Chester and raise a toast to the impact Hybrid Theory has had on us”.

The event takes place on Thursday the August 3 with all proceeds going to the suicide prevention charity Pieta House.

UPDATE: The event is not sold out but due to it’s popular demand, we remain hopeful that there will be another one taking place very soon.
