It was announced yesterday that Rage Against the Machine (fresh off their raucous Lolla show) are coming to the Target Center in Minneapolis on Sept 3. This just so happens to time perfectly with the Republican National Convention across town in St. Paul. What a bizarre coincidence.
Rage guitarist Tom Morello was already scheduled to be in town for a solo performance (along w/ Steve Earle) on Sept 1st, so the timing works out nicely for the guys.
I doubt the show will end up like their infamous 2000 DNC protest concert in Los Angeles, if for no other reason than it ain't for free. In fact, you'll have to fork over $60 for admittance. Tickets go on sale 10am on this Saturday.
