SLIM CHANCE?

Which means Fred Durst and the boys could well be joined by Eminem when they come to the UK next year...

Limp Bizkit frontman FRED DURST plans to bring his band’s ANGER MANAGEMENT tour to the UK, in full, early next year.

The tour, which currently features Eminem, Papa Roach and Xzibit on its US leg, and is renowned for its scale and special effects, looks set to come to the UK in April 2001.

Speaking in this week’s Melody Maker, Durst said: “I want to bring this whole production over there ‘cos I feel like a lot of US bands don’t when they go over there and tour. We haven’t been able to afford to go to the UK much before. But now we can afford it, I want to go over there and blow it up. I want the British people to see everything people will be seeing in the States.”

He continued: “I don’t know if we’ll be able to talk Eminem into coming over with us, but it would be awesome if we could. Wouldn’t that just be great? But I guarantee that whatever we bring will blow your fucking minds. It’ll be some of Britain’s favourite bands.”

Durst decided to return to the UK after the positive reaction from the band’s appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals in August this year. “We’re hated here (the US) by the critics, so for sure we’re going to be hated there. But to have such a good response really gave us a lot of confidence as a band and made us want to come back.”

Meanwhile, Durst has criticised the choice of UK single from Limp Bizkit‘s third album ‘Chocolate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavored Water’. Of ‘My Generation’, out this week through Interscope, he said: “It won’t have hardly any impact over there. I don’t think that’s the song for you. It’s a great song, but not a great single. It’s a raw song and I love the riff and and the big phat drums, but I don’t think I elaborate on the meaning of the song enough. I’m kicking myself in the ass ‘cos I know what I’m talking about, but the verses are too short. It’s about our generation taking the blame. I hope people read into it a little bit more than I put into it.”
