Rage Against The Machine Announces Rescheduled Tour Dates “Public Service Announcement”
Rage Against The Machine have shared their new tour itinerary, with half of their dates now scheduled for early 2023.
The band, who first announced their second reunion in 2019, were scheduled to begin their “Public Service Announcement” tour in March 2020. Ongoing complications surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, however, forced the tour to be postponed multiple times – the most recent of which came in January, where half of the tour was postponed from April to July and the other half was postponed indefinitely.
Now the band has confirmed that the North American tour will take place over two legs. The first will kick off in July 2022, while the second will see the band perform from late February to early April 2023. Run The Jewels, originally announced as the tour’s opening act, will retain that slot for every date except the appearance of the band at the Festival d’été de Québec in Quebec.

The band also announced that while all tickets purchased will be honoured, those unable to attend the rescheduled dates must apply by March 15. All remaining tickets for the band’s tour are available through their website.
In 2021, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello released two new solo albums: ‘The Atlas Underground Fire’ and ‘The Atlas Underground Flood’. The albums featured contributions from artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Bring Me The Horizon, IDLES and Chris Stapleton.
Both albums received four-star reviews from NME. “‘The Atlas Underground Fire’ sounds like the definitive mixtape of future rock & roll, with Morello’s gnarly riffs integral to that progression,” read the review for the former.
The latter, meanwhile, has been hailed as “bold, brilliant and surprising”. “‘Flood’ discovers Tom Morello to prove that, just like his beloved electric guitar, he has a fascinating future,” it read.
