Limp Bizkit has canceled a batch of upcoming tour dates.

A statement posted by the Rapids Theater in Niagara Falls, New York, which Fred Durst and company were scheduled to play Monday, says the show is being scrapped “out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the band, crew and most of all the fans.”

The statement also says that all of Limp Bizkit’s August tour dates have been canceled, though as on Monday morning, you can still buy tickets for several upcoming shows on the schedule, including in New York City and Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, rumors have been flying that the cancellation is due to guitarist Wes Borland contracting COVID-19. However, Durst reportedly denied that in a since-expired Instagram Story, as seen by Consequence.

“Let us be clear,” Durst wrote. “1. Wes Borland does not have COVID. 2. The system is seriously flawed. 3. We don’t care much about the BS…We care a lot about you…’They’ can kiss it.”

Durst also apparently promised that the new Bizkit song, “Dad Vibes,” which they premiered during their Lollapalloza set earlier this month, is “coming very soon.”
