UTG PHOTOS: Limp Bizkit & Machine Gun Kelly (10/8/14)

Limp Bizkit (D. SKANK PHOTOGRAPHY)-63thumb

Under The Gun sent photographer, Derek Scancarelli, to Best Buy Theater in Times Square to photograph Limp Bizkit on October 8, 2014.

If anyone would’ve told me that in 2014 I’d be losing my mind at a sold-out Limp Bizkit show, I would’ve told them that they’re crazy. Believe it or not, that’s exactly what happened when Durst, Borland, and the gang took stage at Best Buy Theater.

The sold-out performance came at the very end of a fall tour with Machine Gun Kelly. The room was electrified with what turned out to be a genuine enthusiasm, although it was just as likely to have been driven by irony. The swagger and confidence of Fred Durst was on par as he ran through hit after hit, including “Rollin’,” “My Way,” “Faith,” and an aggressive encore of “Break Stuff.” He even took a moment to dive into the crowd to send the security into a panic. Perhaps the most interesting portion of the set included their random outburst of covers, including Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name Of.”

For MGK, he took on the persona of an Occupy inspired member of Anonymous, entering the room to a podium encouraging a classless society. His bottle of Jameson, extreme intensity, mask and gun-holster microphone stand only embraced his demeanor. His mohawk also probably added a foot to the already enormous Cleveland rapper.

You can view our photos from the show, below.
