I have a feeling going to a Limp Bizkit concert would be an absolutely hilarious experience.

and even funnier when you throw in openers that'll most likely piss the crowd off

Tool does it best, though.

They should play House Of Blues even though I don't know if they would fill that.

If it was a small club tour I would go sure. The 7th grader in me still wants to see Limp Bizkit but I'm also up for seeing Norma Jean again.

Basicly this the Jr. High kid in me is screaming to see them live.

Truth be told, I saw them open for Metallica back in '03 and enjoyed them. I'd see them again.

I saw Limp Bizkit in a club back in '97 or '98. I was given tickets and my friend and I went and had a blast. I'm not a fan and never bought any of their records but that show was fun.

I saw in in '03 with Korn. It was cool, but by then I was already not as into them as I was in say, 99.

In April, every year the local rock station puts on a show with various bands. In 2010, they got Alice in Chains and Limp Bizkit as the headliners. I LOVED that AIC was there, but HATED this LB was, and that I would have to sit through them for AIC. However, they completely changed my mind with their show. The band was tight, the energy there was off the charts, and it was pretty damn hard not to have a good time, as much as I hated to admit it. They tore the roof off the place. I never bought one of their albums, but they have my respect on the live end. I actually felt bad for AIC since LB stole a lot of energy, since obviously AIC isn't the same kind of band. Plus AIC's stage setup was very basic compared to LB (which isn't necessarily bad, but just doesn't match up when the show before had many stage lights and such to add to the show).

That said, I probably wouldn't go to this, unless it was pretty cheap.

I loved when they booked the sheds a couple of summers ago, w Ice Cube opening) cancelled the whole thing and Durst kept saying it was so they could play BIGGER places

in reality ticket sales/demand/interest were non existent

and i LIKE them just Durst is on another planet not dealing with reality

"Basically, Limp is not an amphitheatre band," Durst wrote. "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."
Now we can do it our way and make it the appropriate venues and add A LOT more cities on the tour w no restrictions.

we are literally rerouting now. It will probably b in the fall, but better venues and a lot more dates in US than before

unfortunately there are major politics involved w promoters and they insisted on ampitheatres, but it isn't the right fit for us
fuck still hilarious

I still remember buying tickets to a Limp Bizkit/Avenged Sevenfold/Halestorm show in AC


It was cancelled like a week or two later

That would be a good show actually. I'd go.

But like I said they need to just do like HOB shows. They aren't going to be filling places that hold more than around 1,200 people.
