Bizkit Cancel Southeast Asia Shows After Security Warning

Band pulls out of gigs in Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines.

Following a U.S. State Department warning of increased security threats abroad, Limp Bizkit have canceled their tour dates in Southeast Asia, a band spokesperson said.

The group had planned to fly overseas to play Bali, Indonesia, on Friday. The concert was to be followed by shows in Bangkok, Thailand, on December 7 and Manila, Philippines, on December 9. But after the recent terrorist bombing in Istanbul, Turkey, the State Department issued a travel advisory and the band decided to nix the shows.

Limp Bizkit will still play five scheduled concerts in South Korea and Japan, starting in Seoul, South Korea, on December 11 and ending in Osaka, Japan, on December 18. The band's next U.S. show is December 23 in Philadelphia.
