Rage Against The Machine
has just confirmed that they will no longer be playing their scheduled shows in the UK and Europe.
That includes their headline sets at Reading and Leeds Festival in a few weeks.
The band have released a statement detailing that it’s down to medical advice given to vocalist Zack De La Rocha.
Here it is in full:
“Per medical guidance, Zack de la Rocha has been advised that the August and September 2022 UK and European leg of the Rage Against The Machine tour cannot proceed. It is with great disappointment that we announce this cancellation.
Rage Against The Machine will be finishing their run at Madison Square Garden on August 11, 12 & 14, and then Zack must return home for rest and rehabilitation. The flights, travel time, and rigorous schedule in the UK and Europe are simply too much of a risk for a complete recovery.
We are so sorry to all of our fans who have waited years to see us and hope to Rage again soon.
Please contact your point of purchase for refunds to any headline shows.
Brad, Tim, Tom & Zack”
