Aging frat boys unite: Limp Bizkit will play its first U.S. show in eight years for free at The Palms Casino’s Pearl Concert Theater on Saturday (July 18).
Tickets will be handed out on a first come, first served basis on Saturday. The show is sponsored by pickRset.com, an online site that lets fans vote for songs they would like played by a band that will be incorporated into the set.
A new LB album, the group’s first since 2000’s “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water,” will come out on Flip/Interscope. A release date is still pending.
Oddly, it seems as if there will be no U.S. dates other than the Vegas show. When LB announced their reforming in February, the band laid out plans for playing European festivals but gave no U.S dates and none have been forthcoming. Our hunch is the band will smartly wait until the new album is out to even attempt to go back on the road in the U.S. Many of the European dates were festivals so LB does not know what its drawing ability to sell tickets on its own name is.
