Chester Bennington Among Crowd at Muse Concert

Common folk weren't the only peeps to check out Muse and Silversun Pickups last night at US Airways Center. Apparently a famous face, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, was also in the audience checking out the show.

To offset the fact the band doesn't alter their set list, they tried to keep audience members engaged with the use of lasers and special dedications of songs -- which was also good if you're a Twilight fan.

Read on to see more of what people who went to the show Tweeted about it.
