Bizket to Explode on Ireland...

American rockers Limp Bizkit made an explosive start to their European tour in Holland on Wednesday night amid fears that their massive pyrotechnic stage show was putting the band in danger as well as the fans. Which will effect Irish crowds when the band play Punchestown Racecourse on Tuesday, June 26th.

The U.S. nu-metallers had to have a last-minute check made by health and safety experts at Amsterdam's Heineken Music Hall because of the sheer force of their explosive special effects.

Dutch officials feared the flames and blasts they are using live could end up torching the band as they played. A worried health and safety inspector told the Sun newspaper: "This is the biggest pyrotechnic display we have ever seen. Limp Bizkit insist on using a lot of explosives during the show and we had some concerns because the band are playing so close to them. The last thing we wanted was something to go wrong and the show ending in a disaster."

Limp Bizkit, who have stormed the UK and Europe with their brand of rock and hip-hop, are touring with an estimated 250,000-worth of explosives in tow.

They hit the stage to a barrage of terrific explosions. Then the stunned 8,000-strong crowd fell silent as 20ft flames shot through the stage, with singer Fred Durst taunting fans: "Do you like fire?"

But he also showed a soft side, plucking nervous Dutch fan Emma Cook from the crowd during The One to dance with him on stage. Later Fred stopped the gig to invite a teenage boy up with him and gave him a Limp Bizkit tour cap.

Then Bizkit moved up a gear, rocking with Hot Dog, from the massive album Chocolate Starfish And The Hotdog Flavored Water.

The furious pace continued until they played out with their greatest hits including My Way, My Generation, Take A Look Around and Rollin'.

Fans left the show in no doubt that Limp Bizkit are the kings of nu-metal and Ireland should get ready to rock.
