Rage Against the Machine to reunite in 2020

The Renegades of Funk have returned: Rage Against the Machine will reunite in 2020 for a series of concerts and a headlining performance at Coachella.

Next spring, Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Brad Wilk, and Tim Commferford will take the stage for the first time since 2011. The staunchly political rock band will initially play a trio of shows in cities along or near the Mexican border, including El Paso, Texas; Las Cruses, New Mexico; and Phoenix, Arizona. They’ll then head to Indio, California to headline the 2020 installment of Coachella in April.

The reunion shows were announced Friday morning via an unverified Instagram account attributed to the band. Industry sources have confirmed to Consequence of Sound that the posting is accurate, and that the band is planning to play more shows beyond these initial dates.

This is a developing story…

Rage Against the Machine 2020 Tour Dates:
03/26 – El Paso, TX
03/28 – Las Cruces, NM
03/30 – Phoenix, AZ
04/10 – Indio, CA @ Coachella Music Festival
04/17 – Indio, CA @ Coachella Music FestivalR

Re-unite?

I didn't know they broke up.

Ugh, I hate Coechella. Hopefully they'll stay together long enough to do more shows in CA

These guys are close to the top of my unseen bands list, so I hope they do more shows around the country.

In that case, you should probably look into Audioslave.

Yeah, that was their first "break-up."

These days, it seems like bands don't so much break-up as they go on extended hiatuses or hibernation periods. I think RATM was active four or five years ago, no?

When I was younger, bands would release an album, tour, work on a new album, release new album, tour, work on another new album, release another new album, tour,.... repeat until they break up.

Now album releases are rare, bands take a lot of time between albums if they even release them, go on shorter tours, take extended periods of time off, maybe their only show during a year is a big festival. It seems like bands don't formally break-up anymore, they just sort of drift apart, then get back together a new tour when they're running low on money.

Many moons ago I got to see these guys play with the Wu-Tang Clan. It was amazing.

Re: Rage Against the Machine to reunite in 2020

I saw Rage live 3 times including their final shows at the Grand Olympic in L.A.. I also saw Audioslave a couple of times. I never did get to see Prophets, though. Hopefully Rage do some solo shows at non-festivals. I don't like festival shows and I am not going to Coachella.

Meh, if there's no new album works then I don't care. They've performed a few shows together since their final album, this isn't the first time they've done this.

I saw them play a show in 2009 at the Palladium. I'm good.

Re: Rage Against the Machine to reunite in 2020

I agree, especially in the current political climate, they should be creating new material and not just performing old stuff.
And I'm not even a huge fan of theirs.

I went to a show in 97 that was supposed to be with the Wu. Ended up being The Roots. Rage was bad ass.

I loved Rage growing up; trying to revisit anything post the debut album is painful; it's all horribly dated and a massive product of its political time.

I always liked Hammond's Ted Koppel impression, and the skit is just awesomely silly.
