Rock News: Limp Bizkit's secret tour
Limp Bizkit has completed their journey across the US on the guerilla rooftop
rock tour to promote the release of the their album Significant other.
For the first two shows the band had bad luck with police. In Detroit
the cops pulled the plug on the show while the band was half way through
their second song. The band managed to get in five songs in Boston
before being forced to shut down.
Their was no publish itinerary for the tour, the band was just showing
up in random cities and giving little clues on local radio stations along
the way. Limp Bizkit front man Fred Durst told MTV news, "It's like an
Easter egg hunt, It's like clues and hints... and 'Where are they?' And
you hear from someone, and you don't believe them, and this thing and that,
and the next thing you know, boom! 'They're going on right now! They're
at this place!'"
Quickly after the Detroit show was cut short some 400 lucky fans got
to see the band at a a surprise club show later that night. According to
reports 1500 fans were turned away, once the club hit its max. capacity.
The third time is the charm. The band's third show in Chicago on
top of the Chicago Trax recording studio went off without police intervention.
So the illegal promo tour ended on a successful note. Actually the police
in Chicago were "Pretty Cool" according to the band, they asked for a permit,
but didn't end the show when one was not presented. So some 2000 Chicago
land fans got to hear a cover of Prince's 1999 the new Limp Bizkit single
"Nookie", and a**orted favorites from the bands past album.
Limp Bizkit's new album "Significant other" hits the stores on Tuesday
