Rage Against the Machine's reunion tour, which Run the Jewels were to open, has been one of this year's most anticipated tours, but they unfortunately haven't gotten to play any of the shows so far. They initially postponed the first part, through May 20, and now they've postponed the remainder, too. The new dates begin on June 3, 2021 in El Paso, TX, and run through August 20, 2021 in Cleveland, OH, and include five NYC dates at Madison Square Garden on August 6, 7, 9, 10, and 12. They also say refunds will be available starting this weekend to those who want them. See all the dates, and read a message from RATM, below.

Rage Against the Machine will commence our tour at such a time when we are confident it will be safe for our fans. The rerouted dates (health and safety permitting) are at RATM.com and your tickets will be honored for the postponed shows. During this difficult time we also respect the fans who want their ticket money back. We've requested and confirmed that, as of this weekend, anyone who wants a refund can begin the process at your point of purchase. We sincerely hope that each one of you and your families and friends stay safe and well and that music is bringing you solace and inspiration. We look forward to seeing you.

Meanwhile, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone that RATM has been one of his musical obsessions while in quarantine:

I guess you find you reach out to a lot of your old friends [musically], also. Probably the music that I’ve listened to the most in the last two or three months is Rage Against the Machine. Am I the only one who thinks that their music just grows more and more relevant every day? [Laughs]. It connects more and more to what’s going on in the world. It just feels like all four of those albums were recorded last week. And when I’m doing my sad little exercises, I’ll put them on and go, like, “Holy fuck,” and just hear something in “Calm Like a Bomb” or “Sleep Now in the Fire” or “Bombtrack,” and go, “Seriously? What the fuck? Where does this even come from?” So Rage Against the Machine is always a reliable friend.
