Fresh off their triumphant North American spring tour, Limp Bizkit have scrapped their European/U.K. summer trek due to unspecified medical issues involving the band's polarizing frontman Fred Durst. The nu-metal icons broke the news on Sunday (July 17th) with the statement below:
"For personal health concerns and based on medical advice given by my personal physician to take an immediate break from touring, Limp Bizkit will sadly have to postpone their 2022 Uk and European tour. We truly apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to our loyal fans, promoters and support staff. Stand by for further news.
Sincerely, Fred & Limp Bizkit"
In addition, Durst addressed the issue via a video message posted to the Bizkit website. "Greetings, to whoever is watching and to our fans in the U.K. and all across Europe," he said (as transcribed by theprp.com) In preparation for the 2022 summer tour in the U.K. and Europe I have decided to do some tests to make sure I'm in good physical condition and everything's OK.
"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 gonna take 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 going to be able to make it at this moment, but I'm only wishing for the best and I know everything is going to be OK. 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."
