Limp Bizkit Booed Off Stage In Chicago.
The trouble started early, even the fans who were cheering Linkin Park on turned nasty with boos when the dreaded Limp Bizkit was mentioned during their set.
Once Limp Bizkit hit the stage it got worst, the “boos intensified, and some fans pelted the stage with garbage”, according to the show review.
Limp Bizkit front-monkey Fred Durst then turned on the crowd. Here are excerpts from the Chicago Sun Times report:
The famously brainless Durst only fanned the flames, first encouraging the catcalls and flying trash, then swerving into a bizarre tirade against the crowd and city. Ranting that he'd fight anyone in earshot and spluttering explicit sexual putdowns, uncreative curses and ludicrous homophobic slurs, Durst simply self-destructed. Had the villain in "The Wizard of Oz" been a vile little boob like Durst rather than a snarly old lady in greenface, the movie's "I'm melting!" scene might have looked like this.
The crowd, perhaps stunned, calmed down, and Limp Bizkit played a few more songs (including a sarcastic, gay-bashing cover of George Michael's "Faith" with potty-mouth lyrics that would embarrass a fourth-grader). But then the band left the stage and Durst resumed his vulgar invective from the wings until, mercifully, he was relieved of the microphone.
