Rage Against The Web Site
A Live Nation operated web site affiliated with Rage Against The Machine has been causing quite a stir lately. The site has been conducting a mysterious countdown with two clocks simultaneously ticking down: one to this Monday morning and the other to August 24th (all while playing the guitar riff from "Bulls On Parade" ad nauseum). Rage's reunion was originally scheduled for a one-off gig at Coachella, leaving fans to wildly speculate whether the site is building suspense for a Monday morning announcement of a comprehensive reunion tour. As for August 24th, it appears quite likely that RATM will be playing that night in East Troy, Wisconsin at the Alpine Valley Music Theater. Regardless, the Coachella set will not be their last for 2007: they will also be playing select gigs with Public Enemy and the Wu Tang Clan as part of the Rock The Bells tour.
