The tour will hit major venues in approximately 45 U.S. cities from October 19th through late December.  With Limp Bizkit's new album "Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog-Flavored Water" slated to release on October 17th as a follow-up to its No. 1 chart topper "Significant Other"  -- The "Anger Management" tour is expected to attract more than 500,000 attendees.  

Rumble With A Rockstar
In each tour location, concert-goers will have a chance to "Rumble with a Rockstar" - competing against one of the musicians each night on Sega Dreamcast.   Playing "Ultimate Fighting Championship(tm)" by Crave Entertainment Inc., their game will be projected on the giant stage screen in front of thousands of screaming fans.  Local radio stations in each city will promote the event and announce the winner for that night's concert. Each winner will also receive a complimentary one-year membership on SegaNet and a Dreamcast signed by the band.  In addition, runners up will receive tickets to attend the Limp Bizkit concert that night.
