People In Ohio Showed Up To A Limp Bizkit Concert At A Gas Station On 4/20 Despite Being Told It Was Fake
Metro- Hordes of Limp Bizkit fans flocked to a petrol station yesterday hoping to see them play – despite being told by news outlets and the band themselves that the gig was fake.
The ‘concert’ – which was in fact set for April 20, 2017 – was first advertised on Facebook by Brian Baker as ‘Limp Bizkit to play 4/20 Secret Show’.
Over 22,000 people were invited – and by the time the big day (or 365 days prior to it) arrived, people were exchanging ‘tickets’ and fake flyers, claiming the gig was being sponsored by Monster energy drink.
Days before April 20 the authorities in Dayton, Ohio had been trying to stop fans turning up to the Sunoco gas station between Keowee St and Wayne Ave for an event that obviously was not legit.
So the day before the show, Dayton police tweeted a desperate and fairly unequivocal warning to potential attendees.
Even frontman Fred Durst said the gig was not actually happening on Twitter – and still fans were rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ along to see him.
Not a good look for Dayton, Ohio. Not a good look at all. This wouldn't happen anywhere else but Middle America. Doesn't matter how high and/or bored people were, no one in the Northeast is making their way to a goddamn gas station on 4/20 to watch a concert that they have been told is fake by the cops AND the front man of the band. Especially when that band is as irrelevant as Limp Bizkit. Think about how miserable life must be in Dayton for people to go through all that trouble on the extreme off chance that they could see a crappy performance at a Sunoco. Watching Fred Durst perform 'Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water' live from a gas pump was the BEST CASE SCENARIO, and people still showed up. Just ignored every piece of evidence saying that there was no fucking way this show was happening because they were so desperate to be entertained by something.
Flyer says 2017? Eh, probably just a misprint. Fred Durst says he absolutely, positively won't be there? Probably just trying to throw casual fans off the scent. The venue is filled with a bunch of truck drivers napping in their 18 wheelers? Well duh, you can't have a surprise show in an actual theatre! Showing up to a gas station in Ohio one year prior to the scheduled show time of a Limp Bizkit concert that you know isn't happening. I think that might be it. The lowest point for humanity. Should have just passed around the spiked Kool-Aid and it ended it all cult-style as a group, because life simply doesn't get more sad, pathetic, depressing, bleak, dismal, hopeless, etc, etc....
