Rage Against the Machine “are not going to give more concerts”

Rage Against the Machine “are not going to give more concerts,” at least, according to what one of its members, Brad Wilk, has announced on Instagram.

«I know that many people are waiting for us to announce new dates for the canceled Rage Against the Machine concerts. “I don’t want to drag this out any longer,” Wilk wrote. «Although there have been conversations between us that this could happen, I want to let you know that RATM (Tim, Zach, Tom and I) are not going to play any more concerts ever again. I feel sorry for those who expected otherwise. “I really wish it would happen.”

Rage Against the Machine canceled their 2022 concerts in Spain, in Malaga and Madrid, as well as the rest of their confirmed dates in North America and Europe, due to an injury to Zach de la Rocha. The group had already postponed the tour, announced in 2019, due to the pandemic.

The comings and goings of Rage Against the Machine have been several: in 2000 they broke up after releasing their final album, ‘Renegades’. Then, between 2007 and 2011, they returned to offer new concerts, with 2011 being the last year that the authors of ‘Killing in the Name’ could be seen in Spain. Sadly, it seems that their third meeting will no longer take place.

In 2023, Rage Against the Machine were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after five attempts, although only Tim Morello attended the ceremony.
