Rage Against the Machine Reuniting for World Tour
Rage Against the Machine are reuniting for a North American and European tour.
They'll begin March 26 at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, with the North American leg concluding with two nights at New York's Madison Square Garden on Aug. 10 and 11. Then they'll head to Europe, starting with the Leeds Festival on Aug. 28 and winding down in Krakow, Poland, on Sept. 10.
Hip-hop duo Run the Jewels will serve as the opening act for the entire tour.
Billboard reports that tickets go on sale Feb. 13, at 11AM local time at the band's website. However, as of press time, the group has not updated its site with additional details.
All proceeds from the first three dates will go to immigrant-rights organizations; the band will also donate to other charities and activist organizations throughout the tour.
You can see the dates below.
The shows will be Rage's first since July 30, 2011, at L.A. Rising, though three-fourths of the band -- guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk -- formed Prophets of Rage with rappers Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill. That group lasted from 2016-19.
During Rage's first hiatus at the start of the century, the same three musicians teamed up with Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell in Audioslave, releasing three albums between 2002 and 2006. Rage singer Zack de la Rocha promised a solo album in 2017, but all that surfaced was one single, "Digging for Windows."
