RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE: Wisconsin Date Scheduled?

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE has reportedly scheduled a date at Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin on August 24.

RAGE currently has four shows scheduled this summer on the Rock The Bells tour. Following the 20-minute sell-out of the July 28 Rock The Bells concert at Randalls Island in New York City, a second New York date was added on July 29. RAGE will again appear, along with the WU-TANG CLAN, CYPRESS HILL and others. RAGE is also playing Rock The Bells dates in San Bernardino, California on August 11 and San Francisco on August 18.

Tickets for the July 29 Rock The Bells show go on sale Friday, May 4 at 10:00 a.m. via Ticketmaster.

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello told Launch that more touring is a possibility, don't hold your breath for a new RAGE album. "There are no plans to do that," he said. "That's a whole other ball of wax right there. Writing and recording albums is a whole different thing than getting back on the bike (laughs), you know, and playing these songs. But I think that the one thing about the RAGE catalog is that to me none of it feels dated. You know, it doesn't feel at all like a nostalgia show. It feels like these are songs that were born and bred to be played now."

Morello will also be touring this spring and summer as his political folk alter ego, THE NIGHTWATCHMAN. His debut album, "One Man Revolution", arrived in stores last Tuesday (April 24).
