Limp Bizkit Joined by Marilyn Manson + Machine Gun Kelly at $3 Show
When Limp Bizkit announced an unexpected Three Dollar Show, y'all, you probably could've guessed some big names would drop by for the special Los Angeles area gig that went down last night (March 5). And you wouldn't have been wrong — just watch some fan-captured footage from the show below.
While diehard Bizkitites patiently await the arrival of the band's long-delayed sixth studio album, the lucky patrons at the Troubadour got a somewhat unique Limp Bizkit concert complete with special guests like rapper Machine Gun Kelly and an apparently fresh-from-the-dentist Marilyn Manson.
It happened as lyrics from Limp Bizkit's songs appeared on a screen during the performance, the karaoke bar affectation giving the hit-packed set a perceptibly looser feel than your typical concert. To boot, longtime Bizkit bassist Sam Rivers returned for the set that included Kelly and Fred Durst's team-up on "My Generation." Elsewhere during the performance, Manson added extra zest as only he could. All from within the audience.
One clip shows the "Antichrist Superstar" (along with Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan) enjoying the performance from the balcony before Durst offers a lighthearted warning, cheekily enjoining Manson's participation.
"Mr. Manson went to the dentist today," the singer tells the audience as the shot murkily captures the rockstar concertgoers. (It's just before he busts into the opening bars of "My Way.") "Let's take it easy on him tonight, OK?"
Not only that, but it looks like Limp Bizkit busted out some of their faithful cover versions at the gig, including a nixed Nirvana run-through and their George Michael send-up. To some fans' disappointment, however, the band did not perform their 1997 debut Three Dollar Bill, Y'all$ in full, but there was still representation from the album.
