Rage Against the Machine have announced a massive 52-date reunion tour, marking their first shows together in nearly a decade.
Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commferford will return to the stage beginning in March as they’ll play a trio of shows in cities along or near the Mexican border, including El Paso, Texas; Las Cruses, New Mexico; and Glendale, Arizona. They’ll then head to Indio, California in April to headline the 2020 installment of Coachella.
Afterward, Rage Against the Machine will embark on an extensive North American tour that includes a mixture of arena shows and festival appearances at Boston Calling, Firefly Music Festival, and Ottawa Bluesfest.
Update: Rage Against the Machine has added additional shows in Oakland (4/23), Minneapolis (5/12), Chicago (5/20), Detroit (7/15), Toronto (7/24), Washington, DC (8/5), and New York (8/13). Additionally, in an effort to combat scalpers, RATM is “holding in reserve 10% of the seating (random seats throughout each venue) to sell at a higher ticket price (but low enough to undercut the scalpers). We will donate 100% OF THE MONEY over the base ticket price to charities and activist organizations IN EACH CITY.”
Update #2: RATM have announced second shows for Glendale (4/1), East Troy (7/11), and Toronto (7/25). What’s more, Rage have added two more dates in New York City (8/14, 8/17), bringing the total number of shows scheduled at Madison Square Garden to five.
The tour will also see Rage cross the Atlantic for shows and festivals in Europe come late August and early September.
Check out the band’s full tour schedule below. Run the Jewels, who collaborated with de la Rocha on the song “Close Your Eyes and Count to F*ck”, will provide support for the entirety of the seven month trek (with the exception of the Chicago date).
Tickets go on sale Thursday, February 13th. Update: Many of the shows are sold out, but you can still get tickets via the secondary market.
All proceeds from the first three shows along the border will go directly to immigrant rights organizations, while a portion of the proceeds from their other shows will be donated to charities throughout the year.
Tickets to all of Rage Against the Machine’s upcoming tour dates can also be purchased here.
