UPDATE: Rage Against the Machine Announce 2020 Reunion
UPDATE: Forbes report Rage Against the Machine's 2020 tour dates are happening. Forbes report, "Wayne Kamemoto, a longtime associate of the band just said, 'The band's social media is accurate.'"
Just one day after My Chemical Romance announced their reunion, rumors of a Rage Against the Machine return are circulating around the internet.
It all started when an Instagram account with the handle RageAgainsttheMachine shared a list of 2020 “reunion tour” dates. The post claims Rage will perform a handful of shows in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and the Coachella festival in California:
The same photo was also shared by Tom Morello on his official Instagram four days earlier:
Musician and actress Juliette Lewis, who is currently in a relationship with RATM drummer Brad Wilk, follows RageAgainsttheMachine on Instagram and liked the post. Things get even more interesting, however, as a Rage Against the Machine fan page claims Lewis reached out to them, confirming the reunion shows are legitimate. They even included a screenshot.
