Limp Bizkit Sued After Short Show
The Smoking Gun reports that Limp Bizkit were sued Wednesday (October 8) in Chicago by 172 concertgoers who claim they were ripped off when the group ended a July performance after only 17 minutes. According to the below Cook County Circuit Court lawsuit, Limp Bizkit cut short its set at Cicero’s Hawthorne Racetrack after instigating fans by displaying “obscene and profane messages to the crowd via four giant monitors.” The complaint also alleges that Durst yelled “disgusting homophobic and anti-gay statements” at the crowd, and continued his vulgar diatribe even after the group fled the stage (Fred took his mic with him). The breach-of-contract suit, filed by attorney Michael Young, seeks a $25 refund for each attendee at the July 26 show, which also featured Linkin Park and headliner Metallica. According to the complaint, 40,000 people attended the “Summer Sanitarium Tour” stop, tickets to which cost $75. Check out the court documents here.
