The San Francisco-area date of Limp Bizkit’s “Put Your Guitar Where Your Mouth Is” guitarist search set for Friday (January 11) was cancelled due to problems obtaining the proper permits, according to the band’s website. The event was to take place just outside the city at the Guitar Center in Concord, California, but things weren’t exactly in order, store manager Frank Gutwein revealed.
“I don’t want to address the reasons why, but it was cancelled due to uncontrollable circumstances. Right now we’re looking at mid-February. We don’t have an exact place or time,” he said.
Limp Bizkit is looking to reschedule the date and is keeping February 10 open. There will be a new venue. According to the band’s website, the event was cancelled because organizers failed to obtain the proper permits. Gutwein said, “It had to do with permits. Not necessarily the city, though. It was more of a building…the lease and all that stuff.”
The tour is set to resume Sunday (January 13) in Portland, Oregon. Limp Bizkit has just confirmed that DV8 will be the site of its guitar search in its hometown of Jacksonville, Florida on February 4. There’s no Guitar Center in that city.
Meanwhile, three winners were chosen on February 10 in Fresno to jam with the band: Jonas Anderson, Reggie Villegas, and Amanda Quinn.
