Rage Against the Machine's massive "Public Service Announcement" reunion run has been a display of great tenacity on the part of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, who injured his leg during just the fourth song of the second show on the tour. The rapper has been performing while sitting down on a road case center stage ever since, a cast visible around his lower left leg and foot.
The incendiary rap-metal quartet are in the middle of a triumphant five-night stint at Madison Square Garden, and then they were set to head to the U.K. and Europe. But today (August 11th), RATM announced that those dates have been canceled "per medical guidance." "Zack must return home to rest and rehabilitation," they explained in a statement posted across their social media accounts. "We are so sorry to all of our fans who have waited years to see us and hope to Rage again soon."
The band still plans to resume touring in 2023. See the full post below.
