No More Concerts, Tour Dates As Rage Against The Machine Reunion Is Over

In February 2020, the legendary rock band Rage Against The Machine announced a highly anticipated reunion tour that would take them across the United States. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the tour was cancelled. Fans eagerly awaited the tour rescheduling and were thrilled when the band announced new dates for the summer of 2021. However, these dates were also cancelled due to ongoing concerns over the pandemic and the safety of concertgoers.

Finally, the band announced a new set of tour dates for 2022, and fans were once again eager to see their favourite band perform live. However, on the second night of the tour, lead singer Zack de la Rocha suffered a severe injury, tearing his Achilles tendon. Despite initial efforts to continue the tour without him, the band eventually cancelled the remaining shows.

In November 2021, Rage Against The Machine was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, one of the highest honours a musician can receive. However, only one member of the band, Tom Morello, attended the ceremony. This was seen by many as a sign that the band was officially no more.

Drummer Brad Wilk then confirmed fans’ worst fears, stating that the cancelled tour dates would not be rescheduled and that the band would not be performing any more shows in the future. Despite the overwhelming disappointment of fans, it seems that hope for any future performances by Rage Against The Machine is now lost.

He wrote on Instagram,

“I know a lot of people are waiting for us to announce new tour dates for all the canceled RATM shows,” I don’t want to string people or myself along any further. So while there has been some communication that this may be happening in the future, I want to let you know that RATM (Tim, Zack, Tom and I) will not be touring or playing live again. I’m sorry for those of you who have been waiting for this to happen. I really wish it was…”
