As it turns out, Limp Bizkit won't be setting off any fireworks this Fourth of July.
The group's Napster-sponsored free tour, originally set to kick off on July 4 in Chicago to mark "Limpdependence Day," has been pushed back a week and will now begin on July 11 in Detroit, according to the band's label, Interscope Records.
The label notes that Limp decided to push the tour's start date back a week so that the group could do the gigs "their way" and in the manner the band had promised fans, with good-sized venues and easier access to tickets.
Stops in Boston and New York will follow the Detroit dates, and the band will visit those cities on the dates originally scheduled (see "UPDATE: Limp Bizkit Lines Up Free Shows"). However, dates originally scheduled for early July in Chicago and Minneapolis will be rescheduled for later in the tour.
With the move of the tour's start date, Limp has yet to firm
up the rest of its itinerary. Here's how the tour looks so far (as always, tour dates are subject to change):
- 7/11 - Detroit, MI
- 7/12 - Detroit, MI
- 7/14 - Boston, MA
- 7/15 - Boston, MA
- 7/17 - New York, NY
- 7/18 - New York, NY
- 7/19 - New York, NY
