At press time a spokesperson for the band could not be reached for comment about what led to the tour’s cancelation. “Unfortunately tonight’s Limp Bizkit show at Stone Pony Summer Stage has been postponed,” the venue wrote on Facebook just hours before the show was slated to take place, promising that a new date will be announced “shortly.”
According to Rolling Stone, singer Fred Durst posted an Instagram Story shortly after the scotched Pony show to dispel rumors that guitarist Wes Borland was having health issues. “Let us be clear: 1. Wes Borland does not have Covid. 2. The system is seriously flawed,” Durst wrote. “3. We don’t care much about the BS… We care a lot about you… Dad vibes coming soon.” Borland also reportedly denied the rumors in his own Story, writing, “I’m not sick… No seriously. No matter what you’ve read, I don’t have Covid. I’m fine. Thanks.”
At press time it was unclear if the tour cancellation will impact LB’s planned run of September festival dates, which includes a Sept. 5 slot at Rocklahoma, as well as appearances at the Sept. 10 Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Sept. 24’s Rebel Rock in Orlando and Sacramento’s Aftershock Festival on Oct. 7.
In the meantime, the band is teasing a new song, “Dad Vibes,” which they previewed at the end of their Lolla set, an appearance that helped push their streams up nearly 30% from the previous week.
