Limp Bizkit has canceled the five remaining dates of the European leg of its Anger Management Tour, beginning with Tuesday's show in Berlin, owing to frontman Fred Durst's "increasingly painful and distressing back injury," the band's management has said in a statement. Durst, 29, was informed by doctors that he requires at least two weeks' rest to begin healing the injury, which had been identified on an MRI as a stress fracture to the fifth lumbar vertebra. He will next undergo a period of gradual recovery and physical rehabilitation. There are no plans to reschedule the canceled shows.
