Rage Against The Machine Plot Reunion Tour, Will Reportedly Play Coachella 2020
Rage Against The Machine, the politically charged rock band known for anthems like "Killing In The Name," has announced a series of reunion dates to reportedly conclude at 2020 Coachella.
"Yes...it's true...2020..." the band confrimed via Twitter. The GRAMMY-winning band, which formed in the early '90s, last reunited during their 2011 L.A. Rising performance in Los Angeles. Their last album was 2000's Renegades.
This time around, RATM will skip Los Angeles and launch their comeback in El Paso, Texas on March 26 then head to La Cruces, N.M., Phoenix and end with performances at both weekends of Coachella 2020, April 10 and 17.
Since their split in 2000, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk formed Prophets of Rage with Chuck D and DJ Lord (Public Enemy), as well as B-Real (Cypress Hill). Frontman Zach DeLaRocha worked on his own projects, including One Day As A Lion with Jon Theodore. The band first reunited at Coachella in 2007 and joins groups like Mazzy Star and Outkast to have chosen the Indio, Calif. fest as their reunion ground.
