Zack de la Rocha badly injured his leg on July 11 working throughout the stage through the second present of Rage In opposition to the Machine‘s in-progress first tour since 2010, however he’s been performing whereas seated ever since and the exhibits have gone off and not using a hitch (though stagehands have needed to carry the vocalist on and off the stage each evening).
And whereas de la Rocha’s situation was apparently manageable up till now, it has pressured the group to cancel its first European tour in 14 years, which was to start Aug. 24 in Edinburgh.
The choice was chalked as much as “medical steerage” in an Instagram submit from the band this morning. “It’s with nice disappointment that we announce this cancellation,” it reads, including that Rage will end its run at New York’s Madison Sq. Backyard tonight (Aug. 11), tomorrow and on Aug. 14 earlier than de la Rocha returns “dwelling for relaxation and rehabilitation.”
“The flights, journey time and the rigorous schedule within the U.Okay. and Europe are merely an excessive amount of of a danger for an entire restoration,” the band says. “We’re sorry to all of our followers who’ve waited years to see us and hope to Rage once more quickly.”
Right now’s information doesn’t affect Rage’s deliberate 2023 street work, which can start Feb. 22 in Las Cruces, N.M., however it’s the most recent in a protracted line of postponements, cancellations, and weird occurrences for a tour that was supposed to start greater than two years in the past. Most lately, guitarist Tom Morello was by chance tackled by safety throughout a Toronto present as they tried to apprehend a fan who’d jumped on stage.
