RAGE HAVE GOT IT TAPED

The group will choose tracks from their three gigs at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore...

Rage Against The Machine are to record three forthcoming SAN FRANCISCO shows for a live album, according to reports from the US.

They will record their July 25, 27 and 28 appearances at the 1,200 capacity Fillmore venue for an album set for release through Epic in the US during November. A UK spokesperson could not be reached this morning (July 13) to say whether or not the album would appear here.

The dates serve as warm-up for RATM‘s forthcoming US and North American co-headlining tour with the Beastie Boys. Nine dates have been confirmed so far, kicking off in Toronto on August 2. Additional dates are expected to be announced following the August 21 show in Indianapolis.

Both acts recently confirmed that US$1 from each of the ticket sold on the Rhyme And Reason 2000 tour will be donated to non-profit charities.

According to [url=]www.mtv.com, Beasties Boys will give their proceeds to the Milarepa Fund, the organisation they helped to establish in 1994 to campaign for social change in Tibet.

Rage Against The Machine are said to be donating to the California Emergency Foodlink and New England Shelter for Homeless Vets, among others. The band donated more than $350,000 from sales of last year’s ‘Battle of Los Angeles’ LP to charity.
