Rage Against the Machine have just rescheduled their highly-anticipated North American reunion tour for 2022 with special guest Run the Jewels.
The ‘Public Service Announcement Tour’ totals 38 dates, beginning on March 31 in El Paso, Texas and concluding in mid-August with five consecutive performances at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden.
Fans who had previously purchased tickets to see Rage Against the Machine on the tour that was originally scheduled to begin in March of last year can retain their tickets as all previous purchases will be honored. Tickets are still available for purchase as well and additional dates from the original schedule have been added too.
In November of 2019, Rage Against the Machine announced their reunion and had originally planned to spend much of 2020 on the road in North America amid a contentious U.S. presidential election campaign.
The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, however, derailed the band’s plans as they were forced to postpone all tour dates that year amid public health concerns and restrictions on public gatherings.
In 2022 though, if things go as planned, it will be time to rage. We’ll get to see Tom Morello back onstage with the reformed group, strings hanging off the headstock of his guitar and all. At least we finally know why he doesn’t cut those strings.
