LIMP BIZKIT stormed off stage at the weekend, after being pelted with plastic bottles, boos and chants of ‘Fuck off FRED DURST’.
Thirty minutes into the band’s Summer Sanitarium show outside of Chicago on Saturday (July 26) at Hawthrone Racetrack, the singer retaliated with a storm of swearing before walking away from the volatile 40,000 fans.
According to Bob Gendron from the Chicago Tribune, the ill feeling towards the band had been building throughout the day. He told MTV: “From the very beginning of the show, there were people in the crowd with ‘Fred Sucks’ banners, and every time one of the other bands mentioned Limp Bizkit, (the audience) booed.”
Durst was met with showers of bottles and other missiles as soon as he appeared onstage. After crouching down and trying to ignore the barrage, he started to call the crowd “fucking pussies”.
After their cover of [a][/a]’s ‘Faith’ he left the stage, just six songs into what was supposed to be an hour-long set.
In other news, Durst has revealed that the long-awaited follow-up to ‘Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog-Flavoured Water’ is “done” and will now be released in September or October.
He said “There’s eighteen songs, and I’d like to get them all on there,” adding, “The saddest song is called ‘Drown’. It’s about realising it’s getting close to the end. Things are getting crazy. It’s my cry for someone to save me before I drown.”
