Durst's injury forced the postponement of the last five dates of Limp Bizkit's tour, originally scheduled to hit Germany, Switzerland, the U.K., and Ireland through next week.
According to the Bizkit site, Durst suffered a stress fracture to his fifth lumbar vertebrae, and has been advised by doctors to refrain from physical activity for at least two weeks. Due to prior commitments, the group is not planning to make up the missed dates.
Meanwhile, Durst reports on the site that Bizkit "cannot wait to get started on the new album. We have to [sic] much built up inside and we wanna let it all out on the new album. We have to take you on a venture [sic] you've never been on before."
Limp Bizkit's latest album, "Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last November and currently sits at No. 25, having been certified five times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of 5 million copies in the U.S.
