Limp Bizkit nixes European tour.
Bad news for European Bizkitheads, the remaining dates of the Limp Bizkit European tour have been called off. The band announced the cancellation because vocalist Fred Durst suffered a back injury. The tour was to hit several cities in Germany this week before heading for dates in Switzerland, Ireland and the U.K.
Although the band did issue a statement explaining that Durst had injured his back, it did not elaborate as to how. The favorite theory here at antiMUSIC is the weight of his swollen head was too much for his back to endure. Here is the official line from the Bizkit camp, “Fred Durst has suffered an increasingly painful and distressing back injury. After consultation with a number of doctors over the past 10 days, Durst was told that a 'mandatory' rest period of at least two weeks was needed from all physical activities to allow the injury, identified by MRI as a 'stress fracture to the fifth lumbar vertebrae,' to begin to heal. He will then undergo a period of gradual recovery and physical rehabilitation."
If you were one of the unfortunate few who were planning to see the show, we have even more bad news; there are no plans to reschedule the cancelled dates. The press release explains, "Unfortunately due to prior commitments and scheduling problems, the remaining five dates in Germany, Switzerland, Britain, and Eire are unlikely to be rescheduled at this time."
So there you have it, the Limp Bizkit assault
on Europe has ended. Now Europeans have to figure out how to get rid of
