Bad news for European Limp Bizkit fans — the nu-metal forefathers have canceled their European tour due to ongoing health issues with frontman Fred Durst.
Durst released the following statement via a video on their website, in which he says (transcribed by Blabbermouth):
“Greetings to whoever is watching and to our fans in the U.K. and all across Europe.“In preparation for the 2022 summer tour in U.K. and Europe, I have decided to do some tests to make sure I’m in good physical condition and everything’s okay. And to my surprise, my doctor has decided to send me a letter telling me he would not like me to tour at this time and to stay close by to do some more tests. And that being said, this was very unexpected news and I’m so sorry and I look forward to making it up to you as soon as possible. And I can only thank you so much for your support. And I truly am grateful for everyone who was going to take their time out of their busy lives and come see Limp Bizkit perform this summer. And I look forward to making that up to you as soon as possible and I’m definitely already trying to think of ways to do that.“I regrettably have to tell you that we’re not gonna be able to make it at this moment, but I’m only wishing for the best and I know everything is going to be okay. And again, thank you so much for your support as we do love and cherish our connection with you more than anything on this planet. And we are really looking forward to seeing you and doing what we do, and you know what that is.“Let’s stay in touch. Let’s figure out what the next steps are. And I’m already working on something to make it up to everyone in the U.K. and all over Europe.“Thank you guys so much, and girls, and all the in between.”
Welp, that sucks, if you’re a European Limp Bizkit fan.
This is of course not the first tour Limp Bizkit has canceled in recent years. Last August, the band canceled their summer tour of the States over “safety concerns” surrounding COVID protocol, with Durst specifically calling into question the new normal for bands touring post-pandemic.
Anyway, we hope Fred gets better, and that the band’s fans can see ’em soon.
