When I was young during high school, I used to be a huge fan of Limp Bizkit. Used to own their first three albums on CD but don’t have ’em anymore, though. Yeah, I definitely was a fan of this band and still am kind of. Now this band won my respect back and I’m a fan again.
Most of Lollapalooza’s lineup this year is mostly garbage. Mostly pop and rap stuff I’ve never heard of before but the only rock Lollapalooza has this year is Limp Bizkit. The band isn’t around much anymore but they still come around occasionally with a new album and tour. Well they have a new album coming out I believe.
Here they are, Limp Bizkit taking the stage at Lollapalooza last night at Chicago. The same members in the lineup since the first album and Wes Borland being back as you can see. Yes, that is Fred Durst sporting a new look with him being 50 now.
I watched the Limp Bizkit set on Lollapalooza live stream on Hulu last night. Of course, Limp Bizkit played mostly their “hits” just to let the fans know that the band really hasn’t gone away and I still remember every song they played. They also played a covers medley during their set too.
I was impressed with them last night, they played a great set surprisingly and they still got it. They haven’t lost their fire and they sound better than ever. They were tight as hell too. During their Mission Impossible song, “Take a Look Around”, Wes Borland went to the front of the stage and threw his electric guitar out into the crowd so that is one lucky fan who caught it and I’m sure that guitar he threw out was very expensive too like $3,000 – $5,000. The band definitely loves their fans for sure ’cause at the end of their set, they were throwing t-shirts out into the crowd and Fred Durst was walking around high fiving to everyone in the front row, giving the fans hugs and stuff. It was cool to see all that.
The band has a new album coming out soon, I believe and I’m gonna get it, I think ’cause they just debuted a new song from the record last night. Even though Fred looks unrecognizable these days, he’s still looking good and very healthy. I’m probably gonna re-buy their first three records, I think too.
I hate most of this year’s Lollapalooza lineup, I only tuned in for Limp Bizkit and that’s all. Glad I did too.
The Foo Fighters headline the festival tonight and I’m thinking about tuning in for them too. Not sure yet… don’t really care for the Foo’s anymore.
