Id buy a twenty dollar lawn tic and go see this atrocity just to see the type of people who are into this sh**. All those tits,seeing people passed out in pools of thier own vomit,well worth twenty bucks! Some of the late 90s ozzfests had this crap on it. All this show is missing is Crazy Towns and Spineshank and Adema.

R10- Here is the press release from Fred Durst that was in the OC Register and OC Weekly promoting the show:

“Limp Bizkit is back, more dangerous and contagious than ever with our original lineup, NEW album Gold Cobra (due June 28), and Epicenter to take your rock and roll fantasy past the extreme. I promise this will be a party you do NOT want to miss. Epicenter will be our first and only Southern California shindig. And fellas, don’t be mad that Epicenter will be filled with women … that’s how we roll.”

Tell me it wouldnt be interesting to see this travesty/trainwreck though. For a twenty dollar lawn tick? If i lived out in S. CA id hit it up at the right price. One of you CA guys should go,and throw up a review in the forum section. Worth a few laughs anyways. Cant be worse than seeing Crazy Town,Limp Bizkit on Ozzfest like i did.

Ha! So none of you So Cal guys are willing to suck it up and take one for the team eh? As bad as this lineup might appear,i think ive been to worse in my day. Unfortunatley,ive endured Limp Bizkit live twice, Ozzfest and Woodstock.

uhhh Limp Bizket seems to be the only wangsta wigger band here...Staind isn't, Five Finger Death Punch isn't, Papa Roach isn't at all anymore, P.o.D maybe and the rest aren't close. But yeah Asking Alexandria doesn't quite fit with all these bands. And Limp Bizket isn't a very strong headliner.

album by bizkit entered 16 on the billboard charts...
what does that say..
on a positive note, there youtube footage this year so far from sonishpere and mannheim germany looked promising for fans, especially the germany show..
fans were into it, no boos or trash thrown on stage...luv em or hate em they still have a decent fanbase and following
