Fred Durst era all’apice della sua carriera tra la fine degli anni ’90 e l’inizio degli anni ’00 grazie ai suoi numerosi successi con i Limp Bizkit. Da allora, molti fan non possono fare a meno di chiedersi cosa sia successo a Durst, visto che è stato costretto ad affrontare uno sfortunato evento dopo l’altro. La sua etichetta discografica ha separato lui e i suoi compagni di band, ha iniziato molteplici faide con artisti come Christina Aguilera e Creed, e si è persino trovato dalla parte inerte in Ucraina. Secondo il Daily Mail, Durst ha contattato la Russia nel 2015 nella speranza di ottenere un passaporto per poter vivere e lavorare in Crimea con sua moglie, Kseniya Beryazina. L’Ucraina se ne è accorta e ha deciso di vietare a Durst di entrare nel loro paese per cinque anni.
Despite all of the controversies, Durst is still doing what he does best. He told LA Weekly in 2017, "I still perform and manage Limp Bizkit. We're very selective of where we play. I think I'm gonna be releasing some new material." The group even went on a U.S. tour this spring.
Now, just as Limp Bizkit was ready to embark on a European tour, Durst has revealed some concerning news about his health that put the tour in jeopardy.
Fred Durst is taking a much needed break
Fred Durst is pressing the pause button on his upcoming tour with Limp Bizkit due to "personal health concerns." The band posted a message on their Instagram account that read, "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. We truly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our loyal fans, promoters and support staff. Stand by for further news. Sincerely, Fred & Limp Bizkit." The comments section was also turned off.
Durst himself has not posted anything on his Instagram account since July 7, and the last time that he posted a video of himself was on April 16. However, he did say in a video on the band's official website that his doctor forced him to postpone his touring plans, advising the performer instead "stay close by to do some more tests." He added, "This was very unexpected news, and I'm so sorry." Despite the unforeseen health issues, Durst reassured his fans, "I'm only wishing for the best, and I know everything is going to be okay." While no one knows exactly what is going on with Durst, there's no doubt that his fans will continue to send love and support in the hopes that he can belt out "Nookie" and "Break Stuff" as soon as possible.
