After securing a headlining slot at Coachella and teasing fans with five other scattered reunion shows, Rage Against The Machine officially announced they will be embarking on a 2020 tour — their first since 2011.
Proceeding their stops at Coachella in April, the Los Angeles natives will be kicking things off in Oakland, CA then heading through the Pacific Northwest, Canada, and the Eastern US before bringing things to a close in Europe mid-September.
The group says they plan to work with charities throughout the tour and 100% of all proceeds from their El Paso, TX; Las Cruces, NM; and Glendale, AZ shows will be donated.
Hip-hop duo Run the Jewels will support RATM on all of their non-festival dates.
Tickets will go on sale on February 13 at 11 AM. For more ticket info and tour details, head over to their website.
