The most historic event in UFC just got bigger with the announcement that rap-metal pioneers Limp Bizkit are bringing the only performance in the US of their “Unicorns N’ Rainbows” tour to Mandalay Bay Beach on Friday, July 10th to perform in their first North American concert in eight years as a part of the UFC 100 weekend. The multi-platinum-selling group has picked the perfect time to return to North American stages, and you can be sure that once their hits â€œBreak Stuffâ€, â€œRollinâ€™â€ and â€œMy Wayâ€ start blasting through the speakers, youâ€™ll have all the adrenaline you need for UFC 100 the next night on Saturday, July 11th.
â€œMusic is one of the things that make the UFC experience so exciting, and Iâ€™ve always been a big fan of Limp Bizkit, so we are excited to have the group perform at UFC 100 event weekend,â€ said Dana White, UFC President.
“We are proud that our first show in the USA with the original line-up in eight years will be in Las Vegas at UFC 100. The ultimate fighting music has finally found its home with the Ultimate Fighting Championship,â€ said Fred Durst.
