Bennington’s family decided to have a private funeral as opposed to a public one for fans, and security was reportedly tight. Fan-organized public memorial events, however, were organized in various cities throughout the world.

Attendee Austin Carlisle — former lead singer of the band Of Mice and Men — shared a photo of the guest pass and wristband required for the service, not too dissimilar from a pass for a rock concert.

“The service today was beautiful,” Carlisle wrote in the caption. “Thank you Linkin Park, thank you Chester. For everything ❤❤❤”
