Limp Bizkit performs at the House of Blues

May 21, 2013 by  

Just a short ride from Woodland Hills, the House of Blues is set to host the band Limp Bizkit later this week.

The performance begins at the famed hangout on the Sunset Strip. The rap-metal band has been performing since 1994 when it was formed by Floridian Fred Durst and Sam Rivers. It was discovered by the band Korn, who passed the group’s demo onto its producer, Ross Robinson.

Word of mouth made the band well-known and Limp Bizkit was selected to tour with the Deftones and House of Pain. The debut album, ‘Three Dollar Bill Yall$’, was released and by 1998 the band made an appearance on MTV.

The group became superstars after the release of the album ‘Significant Other’ in June of 1999, along with the video for ‘Nookie’, and is set to release its seventh studio album later this year. The House of Blues is located at 8430 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, and the group will appear this Friday, May 24.

On the same night, at 7:00 pm, perhaps an even more extreme night of music is on offer as Opeth and Katatonia performs at 7:00 pm at the Roxy, 9009 West Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. This Swedish group will be enjoyed by fans of death metal music.

The group has been known for its musical versatility and lengthy songs since its beginnings in 1990. Having released several albums over the years, most recently in 2011, catalog printing is a great way to keep track of bands like this and their accomplishments over the years.
