Fred Durst Explains The Main Reason Behind Limp Bizkit’s Decision To Cancel Shows
Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst has revealed why Limp Bizkit decided to cancel their shows in an interview with Billboard.
As you may know, Limp Bizkit recently appeared on the stage at the Lollapalooza music festival on July 31. Following their performance, the band became a trend on Twitter and enjoyed a rise in streams and sales. Fred Durst showed off his new look during the concert, which made fans think he looked like a detective.
However, following the Lollapalooza performance, Limp Bizkit decided to cancel their ‘Limited Last Minute Post Pandemic Popup Party Edition’ tour due to safety concerns. The band said that the reason was an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band members, crew, and fans.
Following the band’s statement, rumors started circulating, claiming it was because Wes Borland contracted Covid-19. However, Fred Durst stated that Wes Borland is healthy, but the system is seriously flawed.
In a recent interview on Billboard, Fred Durst discussed this issue once again. He said the system is still very flawed. Durst then claimed that although they took all the needed safety measures as a crew, this did not ensure the audience’s safety. He also added they are doing their best to be responsible and proactive during the battle against Covid-19.
Fred Durst told Billboard about the reason for cancellation that:
“In short, the system is still very flawed. Even if the performers, crews, staff, and promoters do their best to ensure safety on and behind the stage, that doesn’t ensure the safety of the audience as a whole.
We are all in this together, and we all – individually and as a whole – have to make our best efforts to be as responsible and proactive as possible moving forward to combat and stop spreading COVID.”
Limp Bizkit is still working on their long-awaited new album ‘Stampede Of The Disco Elephants.’ Moreover, they concluded their Lollapalooza performance by previewing a song from their new record titled ‘Dad Vibes.’ Although they have recorded 35 songs instrumentally, it appears that the band’s upcoming sixth album needs more work.
