Pandemic Not Over for Rock Tours as Rage Against the Machine Postpones Spring Summer Shows Until 2022


I told you yesterday that Justin Bieber is getting ready to cancel his tour booked for late spring and early summer.

Now Rage Against the Machine has postponed their spring summer tour until 2022. The tour included dates in mid-August at Madison Square Garden.

Even though sporting events are proceeding in arenas at severely limited seating, rock concerts are different. They simply can’t be afforded unless all tickets are available for sale.

Right now, there are so many restrictions on percentages of people who can be in an arena, not to mention the expense of temperature taking and other preventative measures, that tours set up with great optimism are going to start to be folded and reset for 2022.

The Rage tour featured rap group Run the Jewels as an opening act.

Stay tuned for more tour news.
