Is Limp Bizkit in the market for a comeback? Fred Durst’s biography paves the way for the once popular band to return to the headlines.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Fred Durst has been hard at work on a biographical drama series for CW.
With Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst’s new biography in the works and their return to the touring circuit with a greatest hits style concert performed by the band this past Tuesday, everything seems to be in place for a comeback.
Over a decade ago, Limp Bizkit’s rap-metal-punk genre hit radios in a 90’s style frenzy of aggressive lyrics, unconventional methods, and experimental sound. Fred Durst’s current TV project focuses on Limp Bizkit’s rise to fame, the troublesome home life Durst was escaping, and the band’s influence on the music scene.
Fred Durst is co-executive producing with Miles Feld writing. Eric and Kim Tannenbaum are returning to collaboration with Durst to executive produce through CBS TV Studios. The Tannenbaums have previously worked with Durst on another CBS sitcom, Douchebag.
Since the rap-metal craze has effectively died down, Fred Durst has been focusing more on TV and film projects, such as the two CBS drama’s. But Limp Bizkit does not appear to be ready to retire either and has kicked off their return with a “greatest hits” concert at Australia’s Thebarton Theatre. On the bill for the show were hits from Significant Other and Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. Surprisingly Limp Bizkit also made several nods to their inspirations with covers of Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box and Rage Against the Machine’s Killing in the Name.
So what do you think… ready for a trip down memory lane to attend a Limp Bizkit concert?
