Limp Bizkit are postponing a string of summer concerts - so they can move the U.S. tour into bigger arena venues. The rockers have scrapped gig plans for July and August in a bid to give fans "the best experience possible" and are in the process of working out new dates.

In a series of posts on, frontman Fred Durst explains, "Moving U.S. headlining tour dates from amphitheaters to arenas for a better Limp experience. Basically, Limp is not an amphitheater band. We like to see less seats in front of the stage and more floor filled with fans going bananas. It's just more fun for all of us that way. Some bands are meant to be seen mainly sitting down, but definitely NOT Limp Bizkit.

"We want to give you the best experience possible so we will reroute to the venues we feel will work the best. High energy, good times. We want you to have the best. Working on dates now and those who already bought tix (tickets) will be taken care of. Definitely adding Texas. This change lets us add all the markets that were going to be missed. Better U.S. tour for sure!!"

OK I don't see where they say they want "bigger" venues. They say better suited venues. In an amphitheater it is pavilion seating then lawn. They don't want to have people in seats, they rather have a dumb mosh pit in front. Can't any of you people read?

How about... POOR TICKET SALES! Their going to move from an amphitheatre in Camden, NJ holding 25,000 to an arena that tops out at 20,000 because they need more room? I think not... who cares about these clowns anymore anyway? Put on your stupid red hat and go home Fred!

Arenas are SMALLER than amphitheaters - they are moving due to slow ticket sales

Looks like the Nookie may have listened to the Irving Azoff and took it in the Assoff...

Why would they do "larger shows"? Me thinks the Limp may need to go back to small clubs and regain their MoJo.
