The Killing In The Name outfit were set to travel the length and breadth of the US from this May, but they've now "rerouted" the dates to next year from June to August 2021.

See the band's statement below regarding their rescheduled dates which begins: "Rage Against the Machine will commence our tour at such a time when we are confident it will be safe for our fans. The rerouted dates (health and safety permitting) are at ratm.com and your tickets will be honoured for the postponed shows."
