The band made their live debut last week (May 31) with a club show at Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles. At the time, Cypress Hill rapper B-Real said the LA show might be the band’s only concert, telling Rolling Stone: “We just want to focus on this show and make sure we give them 110%.”
But that was followed by an announcement that the band were going to “cause a ruckus” at the Republican Party Convention in Cleveland on July 19 as well play a surprise show at New York festival Governor’s Ball yesterday (June 5).
The Governor’s Ball festival was cancelled by bad weather, which led to Prophets Of Rage playing a last-minute show at 1,000-capacity New York club Warsaw instead. The Republican Party convention performance is still set to take place – and it will now be followed by a full tour.
The 35 date Make America Rage Again tour runs from an August 19 gig at Fairfax EagleBank Arena in Vancouver to Chula Vista Sleep Train Amphitheatre in California on October 16.
It has led to speculation that the band will play select shows in Europe afterwards.
