Rage Against The Machine Cancel European/UK Tour To Allow Zack de la Rocha Time To Heal


Multi-platinum rap metal agitators Rage Against The Machine have cancelled their planned European/UK touring this summer. The decision came about due to vocalist Zack de la Rocha‘s ongoing recover from a leg/foot injury, which has seen him performing the band’s reunion tour while seated since suffering an onstage injury in Chicago, IL last month.

A statement issued by Rage Against The Machine earlier today (August 11th) reads:

“Per medical guidance, Zack de la Rocha has been advised that the August and September 2022 UK and European leg of the Rage Against The Machine tour cannot proceed. It is with great disappointment that we announce this cancellation.

Rage Against The Machine will be finishing their run at Madison Square Garden on August 11, 12 & 14 and then Zack must return home for rest and rehabilitation. The flights, travel time and rigorous schedule in the UK and Europe are simply too much of a risk for a complete recovery.”

As such, the band’s current tour schedule with Run The Jewels opening now runs as follows:

08/11 New York, NY – Madison Square Garden
08/12 New York, NY – Madison Square Garden
08/14 New York, NY – Madison Square Garden
