The dream has now become reality people! Rage Against The Machine, a band who disbanded at the height of their popularity is coming back!
The band quietly posted a series of dates on social media, with Forbes confirming with the band’s longtime associate Wayne Kamemoto that a tour is indeed going ahead.
They will begin the tour in El Paso on March 26, before heading to Las Cruces and Phoenix on March 28 and March 30 respectively. Exact venues and ticket details are still to be announced.
They will then headline Coachella festival for the second time on the weekends of April 10 and April 17. The band previously toured together beginning in 2009, their last recorded output meanwhile was 2000’s album ‘Renegades’.
The tension in the group came to a head when bassist Tim Commerford pulled the first Kanye West-esque like moment at the 2000 MTV VMAs and bum rushed and climbed the stage looming over Rock winners Limp Bizkit. Yes…MTV at the time they gave a Best in Rock award to Limp Bizkit over Rage Against The Machine…
After that Zach De La Rocha put out a few singles here and there. The rest of the band formed supergroups such as Audioslave and later Prophets Of Rage. Now at long last this generation of millennials will get to experience Rage Against The Machine, live.
