Limp Bizkit canceled their 2021 tour recently “out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans.”
Fred Durst said in a statement to Billboard, “In short, the system is still very flawed. Even if the performers, crews, staff, and promoters do their best to ensure safety on and behind the stage, that doesn’t ensure the safety of the audience as a whole.
We are all in this together, and we all — individually and as a whole — have to make our best efforts to be as responsible and proactive as possible moving forward to combat and stop spreading COVID.”
Durst said it was “just perception” that led to the cancelation.
Limp Bizkit canceled their show at Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, New Jersey about an hour before the show was scheduled to begin, with rumors that Wes Borland felt ‘really sick’ after a soundcheck, though Borland said on Instagram that it was untrue and he doesn’t have COVID-19.
