So much for a one-off reunion show. After announcing a "one-and-done" stint at this year’s Coachella Music Festival, 90s politico-rock stalwarts Rage Against the Machine announced that they’ll extend the alliance, citing the speed with which tickets sold out, and the prohibitively expensive scalper prices as reasons. Guitarist Tom Morello, formerly of the recently dissolved Audioslave also suggested the reunion was in part to comment on contemporary American politics and rally the youth of America against the current administration.
But don’t line up for the Giants Stadium seats yet — the band will only be adding three shows to the show, all in conjunction with Rock the Bells, an annual hip-hop festival that will find the band playing with the always creative, eight member Wu Tang Clan.
