LIMP BIZKIT invited soft rock star Ed Sheeran to join them onstage this past Sunday, June 23rd, at the annual Pinkpop festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands. Sheeran made a guest appearance during the band’s performance of THE WHO’s 1971 hit “Behind Blue Eyes”.

After their collaboration, LIMP BIZKIT frontman Fred Durst posted a selfie with Ed Sheeran on Instagram, accompanied by a playful caption: “Fred Sheeran doing the Blue Eyes thing”.

Among the performers at this year’s Pinkpop festival were MÅNESKIN, Avril Lavigne, ROYAL BLOOD, BABYMETAL, PENDULUM, Corey Taylor, GRETA VAN FLEET, and several others.

Earlier this year, CRADLE OF FILTH frontman Dani Filth says that the band’s collaboration with Ed Sheeran is expected to arrive later this year.

Dani said in an interview with Metalshop: “The thing is [Ed] is obviously one of the biggest artists in the world. [But he is] very humble. When he came to the studio, it was just him — no security; just him with his guitar, [wearing a] CRADLE OF FILTH hoodie. Then we took him to a pub for some lunch, ’cause he was hungry. We had a good day.”

“The song’s been done now for about a year and two months,” he continued. It was done just before Christmas 2022. And the reason for the delay is because we had plans for it, and then his management said, ‘Well, he’s releasing a record. Can’t do it now.’ ‘He’s doing this. Can’t do it now.’ So we’ve got a plan for it. It’s gonna actually go on our new record, which is due out the end of this year.”

Sheeran previously revealed that he is “not opposed to creating” death metal record.

“I was really into death metal as a kid,” he said in a last year’s interview with The Sun. “I listened to CRADLE OF FILTH and SLIPKNOT and all that stuff. I’m not saying I could ever step into that world. I learnt all those riffs on guitar as a kid. That’s something I’ve never thought about doing — but something I would not be opposed to creating.”
