Limp Bizkit Tickets for Sale
Rap-Rock band Limp Bizkit is planning to tour North America for the first time in almost 10 years. The group had a mercurial rise to fame in the late 1990s as part of the anti-boy band movement and now returns to the stage with Limp Bizkit tickets for a promotional tour for the new album Gold Cobra. Ice Cube and Method Man and Redman are performing as supporting acts throughout the tour.
Gold Cobra is the first album released by the better categorized nu-metal group. Limp Bizkit unofficially ended its time together in 2005 after the release of a greatest hits compilation album, but confirmed a reunion in 2009. Now, in 2010, Limp Bizkit is back to releasing albums and selling concert tickets for an extensive tour of North America. The album is scheduled to be released during the summer as well.
The hard-rocking band Limp Bizkit has managed to piss off just about everyone on their road to stardom and the top of the music ladder. Off all marquee bands currently "ruling" the musical world, perhaps none challenge the traditional path more than the headline-grabbing band. From a chaotic live show to explicit lyrics to well-placed controversial comments in the press, Limp Bizkit have created a unique brand of music that has touched a nerve with the mainstream and attracted groups of young fans in the process. Limp Bizkit was formed in Florida in 1994 by vocalist Fred Durst and his friend Sam Rivers on bass. Rivers' cousin John Otto soon joined on drums, and guitarist Wes Borland completed the original foursome (later supplemented by DJ Lethal). Thanks mostly to word-of-mouth publicity, the band was chosen to tour with House of Pain and the Deftones. The label contracts came pouring in, and after signing with Flip/Interscope, Limp Bizkit released their debut album Three Dollar Bill Y'All. By mid-1998, Limp Bizkit had become one of the more hyped bands in underground rapcore, helped as well by more touring action, this time with Faith No More and later Primus, as well as an appearance on MTV's Spring Break '98 fashion show. The biggest break, however, was a spot on that summer's Family Values Tour, which greatly raised the group's contour. Limp Bizkit's second album, Significant Other, was released in June 1999. It and the additional video for "Nookie" made the group superstars. Significant Other debuted at number one and had sold over four million copies by year's end, also helping push Three Dollar Bill Y'All past the platinum mark.
