Fred Durst postpones Limp Bizkit’s upcoming UK and European tour due to “personal health concerns.”

The rap-metal group’s frontman announced their shows in the UK and Europe are postponed based on medical advice from Fred Durst’s doctor.

“For personal health concerns and based on medical advice given by my personal physician to take an immediate break from touring, Limp Bizkit will sadly have to postpone their 2022 UK and European tour,” Durst writes. “We truly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our loyal fans, promoters, and support staff. Stand by for further news.”

Additionally, the 51-year-old Durst posted a video on the group’s website explaining that his doctor advised him not to tour after undergoing routine physical tests. He is preparing to undergo further tests but assures fans that “everything’s going to be okay.”

“This was very unexpected news and I’m so sorry. I look forward to making it up to you as soon as possible,” Durst says, adding that he’s “already working on something to make it up to everyone in the UK and all over Europe.”

The Limp Bizkit Still Sucks tour was originally due to kick off on September 7 in London. The sixth studio album from Limp Bizkit, Still Sucks released on Halloween last year as the lowest-charting album in the group’s career. 

Initially, the album was tentatively titled Stampede of the Disco Elephants and received notoriety due to repeated delays. The band released several singles that they intended to include on the album, which they ultimately excluded, including “Endless Slaughter,” “Ready to Go” with Lil Wayne, and a cover of Ministry’s “Thieves.”

The first single from Still Sucks, “Dad Vibes,” was released September 30, 2021, following its premiere at Lollapalooza in August. “Dad Vibes” marked the first new music from the group in seven years.
