Rage Against the Machine is ready to rage again. This time it won't be part of a festival like Coachella or Rock the Bells, although there will be some other great music on the bill. Rage is set to play with Queens of the Stone Age on August 24th in East Troy, Wisconsin. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday, June 16th. There's no doubt this relatively small town is in for some big time rock and roll.
Meanwhile, guitarist Tom Morello, may have seen a little too much rage after a recent gig. Reports say Morello was performing at a rally outside the G8 summit in Germany when the crowd got unruly. According to reports, Morello had to escape the area by boat after the protest became violent. Morello is quoted as saying
, "After my set, I had to escape via small boat to the Baltic Sea. There were police boats blockading the entrance to the festival and we snuck out under cover of darkness." Not sure if there will be a boat escape route in Troy, Wisconsin!
