Limp Bizkit Keep Rollin’ With Energetic Performance in New York City
The band kicked off the sweat-filled night with ‘Why Try,’ and went into their rendition of Ministry’s ‘Thieves.’ The cover song is rumored to be on their forthcoming album ‘Stampede of the Disco Elephants,’ which is due out in 2015.
Surprisingly, they didn’t crank out ‘Nookie,’ but everyone lost their s--t to ‘Rollin’,’ ‘My Way,’ ‘Rearrange,’ ‘My Generation’ and, of course, the band's cover of George Michael's ‘Faith.’
Limp Bizkit’s set went back and forth between being a killer rock show and fun club atmosphere. One minute they would do a Metallica and Guns N’ Roses jam, then later on there would be Ludacris, DMX and 50 Cent interludes. Among the standouts of the night was a performance of Rage Against the Machine’s ‘Killing in the Name.’
Durst is one of the most entertaining vocalists to see live. The way he addresses and interacts with his audience is humorous and heartwarming, and it’s easy to see why the band has maintained a passionate fan base. Durst also walked around the entire Best Buy Theater as he serenaded fans from the front to the back during ‘Eat You Alive.’
Every song performed was memorable in its own way but when the night ended with ‘Break Stuff,’ it was a sensory overload. Throughout the entire song, the fans were on their feet but when Durst belted out the infamous words, "And if my day keeps goin' this way I just might break your f---in' face tonight! / Give me somethin' to break!,” everyone completely erupted.
Supporting Limp Bizkit was rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who displayed a relentless force, unique presence and raw talent onstage. Backed with a full band, MGK put on a highly entertaining show. Check out our full photo gallery below.
