Rage Against The Machine will this week finally record two US shows for a live album scheduled for a late autumn release.
According to their official website, [url=]www.ratm.com, the band will record their two performances at LA’s Grand Olympic Auditorium tonight and tomorrow (September 12, 13) for the album, slated for November release.
The band had originally intended to record two shows at San Francisco’s Fillmore Theatre in July, but pulled the shows when their upcoming tour with the Beastie Boys was postponed following Beastie Mike D‘s shoulder injury.
The shows may have something of an extra edge this week as they come just after bassist Tim Commerford’s release from jail. The Rage man was jailed for a night after he scaled a stage prop at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York on Thursday (September 7). Commerford had climbed the 15-foot arc as Limp Bizkit took to the stage to accept the Best Rock Video Award for ‘Break Stuff’.
He was led from the Radio City Music Hall venue in handcuffs and held overnight before pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.
