Rage Against The Machine Reschedule Reunion Tour For 2021

After initially postponing U.S. shows between March 26 and May 20, Rage Against The Machine have now rescheduled their entire reunion tour with Run The Jewels.

The rap-metal legends have pushed back their tour to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, stating that these new dates fall at a time that the band are "confident it will be safe" for those who are planning to attend.

"During this difficult time we also respect the fans who want their ticket money back. We’ve requested and confirmed that, as of this weekend, anyone who wants a refund can begin the process at your point of purchase.

“If you are attending, please follow the most up to date information on the coronavirus that is available at: World Health Organisation, UK Government and the NHS.”
