Rage Against The Machine established themselves as one of the greatest rock bands of all time. A hit from the 90s, the group always managed to stay relevant thanks to their excellent music.
According to Loudwire, Rage Against The Machine finally made their return as a live band. They performed at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wis., Saturday night (July 9) to start the North American touring of their reunion tour.
This was their first performance in the U.S. since their July 30, 2011 L.A. Rising show at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It was also their return since first announcing their plans to reunite back in 2019.
The band had a terrific performance, putting on classic tracks as well as lesser known ones. Fans were fully invested throughout as well.
After the opening salvo of “Bombtrack,” the band performedthe Evil Empire favorites, “People of the Sun” and “Bulls on Parade.” Among the surprises during the evening were “Tire Me,” “Without a Face” and “War Within a Breath,” all three making their first appearances in a Rage set since 2008. We’ll have to see how the rest of their tour turns out to be.
