Limp Bizkit finally brought the party back to the States after kicking off their 2022 US at the Hard Rock Event Center in Tampa, Florida last night. The nu metal heavyweights - who had to cancel their 2021 North American tour due to pandemic-related safety concerns - got to air a clutch of tracks from last year's comeback album, Limp Bizkit Still Sucks, including the live debut of one track from the record.

Kicking off with a Fred Durst and DJ Lethal-led rendition of recent single Dad Vibes, featuring Durst in full Dad gear and sat on a big, crusty old armchair (because Fred Durst), the band decided to front-load the set with ...Still Sucks material, following Dad Vibes with fellow new cuts Out Of Style, Dirty Rotten Bizkit and stomping, riffed-up banger Pill Popper - making its live debut.

From then-on in, it was pretty much all hits, with a five-song run of Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water classics in Rollin', Hot Dog, My Way, My Generation and Livin' It Up followed by the likes of Nookie, Full Nelson, Take A Look Around and Break Stuff. Seriously, how many metal bands can compete in the fun stakes with a run of hits like that (even if they also seem hell-bent on keeping that goddamn Ministry cover in the set)?

Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland recently revealed that, following a ten-year gap between ...Still Sucks and previous album Gold Cobra, the band might begin work on a new record sooner that we'd think.

"Now that Still Sucks has kind of cleared our pipes, I feel that the camaraderie and creativity within the group is at an all-time high,” Borland told PRS. “I wouldn't be surprised if a new album is in the works shortly after our 2022 touring concludes. Anything is possible."
