Limp Bizkit Came Rollin’ Into Mohegan Sun Bringing Those Dad Vibes
Limp Bizkit are currently out doing a tour to support their 6th album ‘Still Sucks’ released in October of last year. It’s their first album in 10 years and in my opinion worth the wait. For some reason or another Limp Bizkit sometimes gets a bad rap among some music fans which I don’t understand. The first time I saw them was in 1998 and loved them immediately. The pure power of their music is what got me hooked and Thursday night was no different.
The show started with singer Fred Durst casually walking out on stage and over to his La-Z-y Boy recliner and in true ‘dad vibes’ fashion sat down and just chilled out for a minute fumbling around with an old school remote and said “See if I can get my stereo working” at that point DJ Lethal came out and while he kept the beat going Durst sang most of the first song ‘Dad Vibes’ from his recliner. A little into the song guitarist Wes Borland and bassist Sam Rivers joined in on the fun. At the end of the song Durst told Borland he looked “snazzy” in his black half mask , white face paint and white suit. Durst then made a comment about how “this is a nice living room but it’s missing something”. The missing thing was drummer John Otto who at that point jumped into his kit with great approval from the crowd.
The next two songs were also from the new album ‘Out of Style’ and ‘Dirty Rotten Bizkit’. They are new songs but have a very familiar feel to them. The night was filled with an awesome mix of songs that spanned their entire career. Some of my favorites were ‘Break Stuff’, Re- Arranged’ and a ripping cover of Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing in the Name Of’. Actually there wasn’t a song I didn’t like. The band tore it up from start to finish.
Limp Bizkit truly appreciate their fans. Durst made the comment that he liked the ‘vibes’ coming from the crowd. I will say that myself and other fans were totally digging the vibes coming from the stage. It was great to see mosh pits and crowd surfing. People were having an absolute blast. The opening bands included Scowl and Wargasm UK who are both punk bands and a rapper named $not. They are all very different styles from Limp Bizkit but it worked. You don’t want to miss this show if they come to a city near you.
