Rage Against The Machine recently announced the postponement of their reunion tour yet again. They recently let their fans know that the tour has been delayed yet again. It has been intimated that the band is set to kick off their Public Service Announcement Tour in July 2022.

The band’s drummer Brad Wilk, through his Instagram post, stated that the tickets for the postponed shows will be honored at the new dates, but fans can also request refunds starting Thursday for a 30-day window.

One of the user, ‘the_real_renee_’  commented: “Tell me why tickets are $400-$900 ridiculous”.

Wilk took note of the comment, and stated that 10% of all tickets were $125 and 10% of all tickets were charity tickets. He added that all the money for those tickets will go to charity, and called out resale ticket prices.

Brad Wilk responded, “@the_real_renee_ If you do a little research you would find that 90% of all tickets were $125. 10% of all tickets were charity tickets. All money for those tickets go to charity. So you are either seeing charity tickets because that’s all that’s left or you are buying from a resale broker.”

Rage Against The Machine delayed reunion tour

The North American leg of the tour was originally scheduled to begin in March 2020 before the virus pandemic forced them to announce a series of postponements. It will now begin on July 9 in East Troy, Wisconsin, as the band announced Thursday that all 19 gigs from March 31 to May 23 will be rescheduled.

Fans were concerned when band’s 2022 tour dates were announced but the band was removed as a headliner from the 2022 Coachella festival, where they were previously announced as headliners after their 2020 and 2021 gigs at the fest were nixed due to the pandemic.Recently, the organizers for the Boston Calling festival — which also booked Rage for a headlining set had announced that the band would no longer perform at that fest.
