rage against the machine tour 2021
On Friday, Rage Against The Machine announced that they would be rescheduling their entire reunion tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After initially postponing the first leg of their North American tour in March, April, and May, the band decided on moving the entire run of shows, including those with rap supergroup Run The Jewels, to 2021.

The band explained in a post to the band’s Facebook,
Rage Against The Machine will commence our tour at such a time when we are confident it will be safe for our fans. The rerouted dates (health and safety permitting) are at RATM.com and your tickets will be honored for the postponed shows. 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. We sincerely hope that each one of you and your families and friends stay safe and well and that music is bringing you solace and inspiration. We look forward to seeing you.

RATM’s 2021 tour dates will now kick off on June 3rd at Don Haskins Center in El Paso, TX before the band makes its way through New Mexico, Arizona California, Oregon, and Washington. After a few dates north of the border, Rage will then head across the Midwest before going back to Canada, and then the East Coast. The band will then play five shows in six nights at Madison Square Garden in New York City (8/6-8/12) before closing the tour with shows in Washington D.C., North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
The band’s festival appearances remain in question, however. While Rage has announced they will remain on the Coachella lineup, whether or not that festival takes place as scheduled in October remains to be seen. Ottawa Bluesfest has confirmed that RATM will appear on the 2021 lineup, though no word has come down from Boston Calling or Firefly Music Festival.
