American nu-metal band Limp Bizkit have postponed their scheduled European tour dates, owing to the health of their frontman, Fred Durst. The band went on tour, which started earlier in April this year, in support of their recent album, Still Sucks.
“Due to personal health concerns and the advice of my personal doctor to take an urgent break from performing, Limp Bizkit will be forced to postpone their 2022 U.K. and European tour,” Durst and the band wrote in an Instagram post. “We deeply regret any inconvenience this may bring to our devoted fans, promoters, and support personnel.”
In September, the band was slated to visit the United Kingdom. They planned to perform at four venues, including the Brixton Academy in London, as well as in Birmingham and Manchester. They were also set to perform in Germany, Austria, and France, among others.
Durst in His Video Message
“In preparation for the 2022 summer tour in U.K. and Europe, I have decided to do some tests to make sure I’m in the good physical condition and everything’s okay. And to my surprise, my doctor has decided to send me a letter telling me he would not like me to tour at this time and to stay close by to do some more tests. And that being said, this was very unexpected news and I’m so sorry and I look forward to making it up to you as soon as possible. And I can only thank you so much for your support. And I truly am grateful for everyone who was going to take their time out of their busy lives and come see Limp Bizkit perform this summer. And I look forward to making that up to you as soon as possible and I’m definitely already trying to think of ways to do that.
I regrettably have to tell you that we’re not gonna be able to make it at this moment, but I’m only wishing for the best and I know everything is going to be okay. And again, thank you so much for your support as we do love and cherish our connection with you more than anything on this planet. And we are really looking forward to seeing you and doing what we do, and you know what that is.
Let’s stay in touch. Let’s figure out what the next steps are. And I’m already working on something to make it up to everyone in the U.K. and all over Europe.”
Know More About Limp Bizkit
Limp Bizkit is a Jacksonville, Florida-based American rap rock band. Fred Durst (lead vocals), Sam Rivers (bass, backing vocals), John Otto (drums, percussion), DJ Lethal (turntables), and Wes Borland make up the group’s makeup (guitars, vocals). The band’s music is distinguished by the aggressive vocal delivery of Durst and the musical experiments of Borland. Borland’s extravagant visual look, consisting of face and body paint, masks, and costumes, plays a significant role in Limp Bizkit’s live performances.
The group has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, has sold 40 million records worldwide, and has received numerous additional accolades. The band has released 26 singles, the most notable of which are “Nookie”, “Re-Arranged”, “Break Stuff”, “Take a Look Around”, “Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle),” “My Generation”, “My Way”, “Eat You Alive”, and their cover of The Who’s 1971 single “Behind Blue Eyes”, which have all charted within the top 20 of the US Alternative Airplay Chart.
In 2001, the original band separated when guitarist Wes Borland left the group. In 2004, Borland did rejoin Limp Bizkit. However, the band had recently taken a break, with “Dad Vibes” from the album Still Sucks being their first new song in seven years.
