Fred Durst took a blow to the head while performing at a Back 2 Basics tour stop Friday, resulting in seven stitches to his face.
Near the end of Limp Bizkit's set at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, the scrappy frontman climbed up to the first-level mezzanine while performing "Eat You Alive," the first single from the band's latest album, Results May Vary. While he was up there, an unidentified object was thrown from the crowd, hitting Durst in the face, according to an Interscope Records spokesperson.
Bleeding profusely, Durst still had the wherewithal to finish the remaining two songs to cap Limp Bizkit's set. After the show, Durst had stitches administered by a private physician.
The incident occurred nine shows into Bizkit's co-headlining trek with Korn, which began November 10 in Las Vegas and continues through Friday in Toronto (see "Bizkit, Korn Take It Back 2 Basics in L.A. — But Throw In Nirvana and a Mohawk" ).
