– This show was at first postponed on very short notice, just one hour before doors were supposed to open, due to safety concerns by the band. Soundcheck took place and included the instrumentals of ‘Livin’ It Up’, ‘Hot Dog’ and ‘My Way’ until the first chorus, ‘Rollin’ (Air Raid Vehicle)’ from verse 1 to chorus 2, ‘Nookie’ beats, ‘Undone – The Sweater Song’ by Weezer and Fred playing ‘Behind Blue Eyes’ (The Who cover) and other unknown songs on his acoustic guitar.
On August 07th the rest of the tour was officially cancelled. The statement said:
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans, the Limp Bizkit August tour is being cancelled.
On August 10th, Billboard released a short interview with Fred – quoted from 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 cancellation.
– This would have been the bands’ first show in the city and venue since 2013. However it would have been the first time that the band played the outdoor stage with a capacity of up to 3000 people instead of the club with up to 800 people.
