Lollapalooza 2021: Was Fred Durst wearing a wig? Limp Bizkit singer SHOCKS fans with gray hair
The legendary rap-rock band Limp Bizkit floored the audience with their enthralling performance at the ongoing Lollapalooza festival in Chicago on July 31. While the fans thoroughly enjoyed the band’s set, it was the group’s frontman Fred Durst’s new looks that took everyone by surprise. The 50-year-old Limp Bizkit vocalist soon grabbed a top spot on the trending list over the weekend as social media users failed to recognize him.
The singer-cum-filmmaker is usually spotted in his regular-shaved look teamed up with a baseball cap. However, the crooner decided to don a new look as he hit the Lollapalooza 2021 stage with gray hair and a handlebar mustache. Since this was the very first time the live audience saw Fred Durst in gray hair many claimed that it was a wig as they poured in hilarious reactions on Twitter. Speaking of the festival, artists like Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, and Roddy Ricch will also grace the festival. Lollapalooza opened its gates to the public on July 29 and will wrap it up on August 1.

Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst first left his fans in shock when he took to Instagram a few days ago to share his new look with his more than 300K followers. He shared a close-up selfie in his grey hair and the handlebar mustache and captioned the post as, “thinking about you 70” followed by an emoticon of a spaceship. The photo now sits at more than 60K likes. His two other pictures on Instagram also come with his new look. Though it is not confirmed whether the rap Rockstar wore a wig or not, his new hairdo and facial hair certainly grabbed everyone’s attention when he landed on the stage at Lollapalooza.
