Limp Bizkit Cancel Summer Tour Over “Safety” Concerns
Limp Bizkit have canceled the remaining dates of their summer tour with Spiritbox, which kicked off on July 29 and played only three shows. The run had been scheduled to carry on for 12 performances through the end of August.
Citing concerns over “safety” without mentioning Covid-19 specifically, the band issued a statement on social media shortly before their Friday, August 6 show in Asbury Park, NJ was set to take place:
“Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, the Limp Bizkit show this Monday and the remaining August tour is being cancelled. Refunds are available at their points of purchase. All tickets purchased online will be automatically refunded.”
Shortly after the cancelation, rumors began circulating that guitarist Wes Borland had told some people he felt sick before the Asbury Park show. Frontman Fred Durst posted on Instagram yesterday definitively stating that Borland does not have Covid-19, and Borland himself shared the message while adding that he’s vaccinated.
Limp Bizkit played a recorded version of a new song called “Dad Vibes” over the PA at one of the tour’s earlier stops. Borland previously said that the band is sitting on a lot of new music but hasn’t released it yet because it’s not up to Durst’s high standards.
The band also paid tribute to late ex-Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison at their show in Iowa.
The canceled dates are as follows:
08/06 Asbury Park, NJ – Stone Pony Summer Stage
08/09 Buffalo, NY – Rapids Theatre
08/12 Gilford, NG – Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion
08/13 New York, NY – Irving Plaza
