The nu-metal man also gets his shorts pulled down
After the band had finished playing ‘Rollin” on the Main Stage, Durst gestured to a man in the crowd wearing a red cap and black Limp Bizkit shirt much the same as his.
Durst said that the man had been singing along to every word of the band’s songs and that he was “getting his guts squished out” down in the moshpit.
He then invited the ecstatic fan up to join him, announcing: “This is his stage right now.” After an energetic rendition of ‘Full Nelson’ with the fan, Durst yelled: “Put that fucking guy in a band, now!”
Earlier in the set, Durst had gone down to the barrier at the front of the crowd to perform ‘Eat You Alive’, but before he started the song a fan managed to pull down his trademark baggy shorts – much to the amusement of the crowd, as the incident was shown on the two large screens flanking the stage.
The band, who came onstage at 5.45pm [BST], played a greatest hits set, opening with ‘Break Stuff’ and also playing their cover of George Michael‘s ‘Faith’.
Fred Durst also paid tribute to Korn, who followed the band on the Main Stage.
Limp Bizkit played:
‘Livin’ It Up’
‘Show Me What You Got’
‘Eat You Alive’
‘Take A Look Around’
