(TRR) – Rage Against The Machine have announced a 2020 world tour. After previously announcing three reunion shows and handful of festival appearances, the band have finally confirmed a full routing of their highly-anticipated world tour.
Tickets go on sale this Thursday, February 13 at 11am local time HERE.
The trek begins at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, TX on March 26 and wraps up overseas at the Tauron Arena in Krakow, Poland on September 10. The tour will see RATM headline festivals like Coachella (US), Firefly (US), Ottawa Bluesfest (CA), Reeding & Leeds (UK), Lollapalooza Berlin (Germany), and others.
The band will be supported by renouned rap duo Run The Jewels. Rage Against The Machine Frontman Zack de la Rocha appeared on Run The Jewels‘ megahit “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck).”
Last fall, rumors of a Rage reunion began to spread like wildfire after a post to the band’s social media. Wayne Kamemoto, a longtime associate of the band, confirmed to Forbes that “the band’s social media is accurate.”
November 2, 2019 marked the 20th anniversary of Rage Against The Machine’s third and final (for now) studio album The Battle of Los Angeles, which was released on November 2, 1999 via Epic Records.
Rage Against The Machine have not performed together since their L.A. Rising show at the Los Angeles Coliseum in 2011. In 2013, drummer Brad Wilk recorded drums on Black Sabbath‘s final studio album 13. He proceeded to perform with the band on their final world tour in place of original drummer Bill Ward.
In May 2016, Wilk, guitarist Tom Morello and bassist Tim Commerford teamed with Public Enemy‘s Chuck D and Cypress Hill‘s B-Real to form Prophets Of Rage.
Also in 2016, de la Rocha released a solo album.
