Chester did the singing in Julien-K Saturday for Ryan Shuck who couldn't be there.

"September 4th, 2007: This past Saturday's audience at the Chicago, IL Projekt Revolution tour got a little extra for their money when Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington filled in for Ryan Shuck of Julien-K, performing the bands entire set along with Julien-K members Amir Derakh, Brandon Belsky and Elias Andra.

Shuck, who has a previous commitment as best man in his brother's wedding was unable to perform on Saturday with his band Julien-K, and instead of the band having to cancel their show, their friend Chester offered to fill in pulling double duty for the day (he performed later that night with Linkin Park as well).

"We're thrilled that he would offer to do something like that. It's hard enough singing for 90minutes with what he does in Linkin Park, but offering to come up and sing our set and allowing the rest of Julien-K to perform is above and beyond. We're truly grateful." said the band's guitarist, Amir Derakh.

"Those guys are my friends, and Ryan had a family commitment he couldn't miss obviously. I love playing with those guys and had been joining them on stage recently for their last song, so when the situation came up, I figured "why not?", it's fun to sing other peoples material sometimes" stated Bennington.

Projekt Revolution features Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, HIM, Taking Back Sunday, Placebo, Julien-K and more. The tour has been traveling the country since July 25th, and wrapped up yesterday with the last show in Denver, CO.

Julien-k is the brainchild of two of the founding members of the platinum selling group Orgy; Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck. They are joined by drummer Elias Andra and studio collaborator and cohort Brandon Belsky on keyboards & vocals. "

We're seeing if we can track down any video footage for you guys to see.
