Watch Pop-Punkers the Wonder Years Perform as Limp Bizkit for Halloween
Pennsylvania pop-punk outfit the Wonder Years are donning Fred Durst duds and performing a full Limp Bizkit set during their "Halloween Extravaganza" tour that's currently covering the Northeastern U.S.
The run of eight concerts is billed as the "third (occasionally) annual" time the veteran pop-punkers have mounted the festive feat. For last year's trek, they performed a Queen tribute set. This time around, the Wonder Years are treating concertgoers to a selection of Limp Bizkit covers — complete with lead singer Dan "Soupy" Campbell rockin' a red baseball cap and baggy pants — alongside their regular set of original songs. Watch some fan-captured footage of the band's Limp Bizkit set down toward the bottom of this post.
Tackling nostalgic Bizkit fare such as "Nookie," "Break Stuff" and George Michael cover "Faith," the band seem suitably committed to the act, as frontman Campbell surmised onstage in Chicago Sunday (Oct. 20).
"I never thought that I would have the opportunities to do things like play New Years Eve '98/'99 for MTV with Carson Daly, a real one," the singer effectively cosplayed in his most authentic Fred Durst attire.
The Wonder Years' latest "Halloween Extravaganza" kicked off last week in Columbus, Ohio. Dates in Baltimore, Boston, New York City and Philadelphia remain. See the details after the videos, and get tickets here.
