Limp Bizkit Cancel Remaining "Post Pandemic" Tour Dates Due to COVID
Published Aug 09, 2021Limp Bizkit's "Post Pandemic Popup Party" tour has been cancelled due to the still very much ongoing pandemic.
"Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, the Limp Bizkit show this Monday and the remaining August tour is being cancelled," the group said in a statement [via Rolling Stone]. "Refunds are available at their points of purchase. All tickets purchased online will be automatically refunded."
The tour, which was slated to wrap with a show at the Palladium in Los Angeles on August 24, gained considerable hype following a packed Lollapalooza show that premiered frontman Fred Durst's new dad-core look, with the group performing a new song titled "Dad Vibes."
The tour cancellation comes after reports that a member of the band had contracted COVID prior to their performance in Ashbury Park, NJ, on August 6. However, Durst took to Instagram Stories to quash the rumours.
"1. Wes Boland does not have COVID. 2. The system is seriously flawed. 3. We don't care much about the BS," wrote Durst, adding, "Times2. we care a lot about you. To the six. 'They' can kiss it. Dad vibes coming soon."
The band's recent viral success has seen a major leap in interest in the 1990s nu-metal partiers, with the group's sales jumping an impressive 100 percent since their Lollapalooza performance.
