Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington, middle, and Koshi Inaba and Tak Matsumoto of the popular Japanese pop group B’z, listen in during a pre-show press conference Wednesday at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles. Fans of the bands donated more than $350,000 toward relief efforts. The one-night-only concert included a silent auction of autographed memorabilia and proceeds from ticket sales went to benefit the affected residents of the Tohoku region.
