Rage Against The Machine to play more summer shows

The comeback rockers reveal more dates

LA rockers Rage Against The Machine have been added to the acclaimed Rock The Bells hip-hop festival bill alongside the Wu Tang Clan for three dates across the US during the summer.

The legendary quartet have already been confirmed to play a reunion gig – their first in seven years – at this year’s Coachella festival in April but due to high demand and subsequent touting, the band have agreed to play more shows.

The event’s organiser Chang Weisberg said: “Rage will do four shows and just four in 2007. Coachella is first, that’s the granddaddy. And now these three with the Wu Tang Clan represent a very, very special thing.”

The dates are:

Randall’s Island, New York (July 28)

National Orange Show Events Centre, San Bernardino, CA (August 11)

Venue TBA, San Francisco, CA (August 18)

The Wu Tang Clan will be appearing in support of their long-awaited comeback album ‘8 Diagrams’, due for release in the summer.
