The band, who first announced their second reunion back in 2019, were set to begin their ‘Public Service Announcement’ tour in March 2020. Ongoing complications surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, however, has forced the tour to be rescheduled several times over – the most recent of which came in January, where half the tour was postponed from April to July and the other half was postponed indefinitely.
Now, the band have confirmed that the North American tour will take place across two legs. The first will commence in July 2022, while the second will see the band performing from late February through to early April 2023. Run The Jewels, who were originally announced as the opening act for the tour, will retain that slot for every date except the band’s appearance at Festival D’Ete De Quebec in Quebec City.

The band have also announced that, while all purchased tickets will be honoured, those unable to attend the rescheduled dates must file a request for one by March 15. All remaining tickets for the band’s tour are available via their website.
2021 saw Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello release two new solo albums: ‘The Atlas Underground Fire’ and ‘The Atlas Underground Flood’. The albums featured contributions from acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Bring Me The Horizon, IDLES and Chris Stapleton.
Both albums received four-star reviews from NME. “‘The Atlas Underground Fire’ sounds like the definitive mixtape of future rock & roll, with Morello’s gnarly riffs very much a part of that progression,” the review read for the former.
The latter, meanwhile, was praised as being “bold, brilliant and surprising”. “‘Flood’ finds Tom Morello out to prove that, just like his beloved electric guitar, he has a fascinating future indeed,” it read.
