Rage Against the Machine coming to Alpine Valley!

The rumors are true…Rage Against the Machine is coming to Alpine Valley on August 24! But get this—it’s their ONLY Midwest stop this summer.

The band—known for both their distinct hip-hop/funk/hard rock sound and their strong political convictions—split up back in 2000 after 9 years of performing together. The band members have reunited temporarily for a number of summer gigs and have even launched a new website--leading many people to believe the short-term reunion might be something much more permanent.

There is also a lot of speculation that the band will be making a big announcement at the concert. Some are saying they’ll release a live album taped at the Coachella Music Festival, where they performed back in April. Others are guessing they will be releasing some new studio material or perhaps announcing officially that the band will be reuniting for good.

Regardless—big Rage fans are going to want to make the trek to East Troy. Queens of the Stone Age will be opening the show.
Rage Against the Machine tickets will go on-sale Saturday, June 16 and will be available through Ticketmaster.
