Limp Bizkit Comments On UFC Show Cancellation, Plans To Play Another Las Vegas Venue

Limp Bizkit has responded to the cancellation of their UFC expo appearance. In a statement, the band says that they didn’t want to cancel the performance, and that out of respect to fans that bought tickets to see the band in Sin City, they’ll perform that night at a not-yet-determined location. It will be Limp Bizkit’s only stateside show until they finish prepping their new album in the fall.

"Limp Bizkit did NOT, in any way, cancel the UFC 100 concert in Las Vegas. Truth is UFC and Interscope Records could not come to an agreement on certain DVD rights. With all respect to Mandalay Bay, the UFC were also unhappy with Limp Bizkit decision of wanting to switch the performance from the Beach at Mandalay Bay with its inappropriate layout for a heavy rock concert with Limp Bizkit, basically a stage in front of a pool, to a more standard concert venue also located at the Mandalay Bay, which was the House Of Blues. The UFC expressed they wanted a ‘party vibe’ for this event and would not settle for any venue besides the Beach for this and other reasons."
