Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst on Lack of U.S. Touring: ‘We Were a Moment in Time and It’s Over’

Fred Durst
Mary Ouellette,

Limp Bizkit have done plenty of touring in recent years, but it’s been noticeable that the group haven’t played very much in the United States. Singer Fred Durst tells Kerrang! that a good reason for that was the band realizing that American audiences had moved on.

He told Kerrang! (via The PRP), “We don’t play back home. We’ve boycotted America for many years now. I don’t know, I just don’t wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven’t properly toured America since 2006. The reason? We just don’t know what’s going on in America. It’s all about the new catchy thing and that’s always changing. America is driven by record sales. It’s the home of corporations. We’re just Limp Bizkit, so we don’t know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit.”

The singer added, “Here’s the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.”

Limp Bizkit were rumored to be doing some U.S. dates with Wes Borland’s Black Light Burns opening shows, but so far no dates have been announced.
