Limp Bizkit Self-Destruct In Chicago





On Saturday, The Summer Sanitarium tour made its way to Chicagoland's Hawthorne horse track. The tour features Mudvayne, Deftones, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, and headliners, Metallica. From all accounts the majority of the show went off without a hitch, but it was Limp Bizkit's abbreviated set that made the evening even more magical (in the most sarcastic sense of the word). Some foreshadowing of the big blow out came during Linkin Park's set when the very mention of "Limp Bizkit" drew a large amount of boos from the crowd. However, that was nothing compared to the when the Bizkit actually took the stage. According to a report in the Chicago Sun Times, Fred Durst and company were met with intensified boos and were pelted with trash when they walked on stage.


The always-cool-headed Durst only egged the crowd on by exploding into a bizarre tantrum where he shouted profanity and homophobic slurs at the crowd, the entire city of Chicago, and Q101 morning personality Mancow Muller. The band managed to eke out a cover of George Michael's "Faith," but soon left the stage, leaving only Durst, his anger, and a microphone. The frontman continued to berate the crowd with insults until he was finally, and mercifully, relieved of the mic.

The crowd was then left with 90 minutes to kill before Metallica took the stage, but I'd imagine that was exponentially more entertaining than any Bizkit set.
