Limp Bizkit Cancels Summer Tour

Limp Bizkit has canceled plans for a summer open air tour in favor of an autumn tour at smaller venues. This news hits after opener Snoop Dogg had previously pulled out of the tour, leaving only Limp Bizkit and Ice Cube as a two set tour package with Method Man and Redman on select dates.

In response to the cancellation, Limp Bizkit vocalist Fred Durst had the following to say, "Basically, Limp is not an amphitheater band. We like to see less seats in front of the stage and more floor filled with fans going bananas. It's just more fun for all of us that way. Some bands are meant to be seen mainly sitting down, but definitely NOT Limp Bizkit. We want to give you the best experience possible so we will reroute to the venues we feel will work the best. High energy, good times. We want you to have the best."

The Band's Autumn tour dates in Europe will remain unchanged and will run from August 24th through October 9th. The rescheduled North American tour dates will occur in late autumn. No word has been given as of yet as to whether tickets purchased for the summer amphitheater will still be eligible for entry on the rescheduled dates.

Ronnie James Dio is the KING. The live version of Children of the Sea on Live Evil is epic.

Also, they can't come close to fill amphitheaters. Whose going to watch this show anyway? I won't be surprised if they cancel the whole tour because of low ticket sales.

i couldnt believe he had the audacity to think that an amphitheater would be able to sell out with limp bizkit. the arena tour'll sell out but the arenas'll be near empty after Ice Cube is off the stage

In that vein death bringer, I am of the opinion that had it been that idiot Durst that keeled over instead of all these other real and worthy musicians, it wouldn't be bad news at all either!

There's got to be a MAC truck with his DOD on it somewhere!!!

I really can't see how this is headline material to be honest. If it was LB cancels tour due to massive ball injury I could understand...

Sounds logical to me. Low ticket sales and Limp Bizkit. makes sense.
Like I said before, WHY LB even made a comeback doesn't make any sense to me. Does anyone even care, apart from Oz, of course?

You're all forgetting that Limb Bizkit still have fans. Just because they aren't kvlt or br00tal doesn't mean they aren't going to have a fanbase, you guys are worse than the mainstream fags.
