Watch Rage Against the Machine play ‘Bulls on Parade’ and ‘Killing in the Name’ at first show in 11 years

The band kicked off their long-delayed Public Service Announcement tour in incendiary style

It’s been more than a decade – 11 years, to be exact – since Rage Against the Machine last played a show together. That performance took place at 2011's L.A. Rising concert, and now the band – front man Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk – have finally followed it up, kicking off the highly anticipated (and much delayed, due to Covid) "Public Service Announcement" tour, with support from Run the Jewels.

The 16-song set at Wisconsin's Alpine Valley Music Theatre saw Rage hit all the classic notes, from opener “Bombtrack” to closer “Killing in the Name.” They also threw in a cover, "The Ghost of Tom Joad," from Morello’s good friend and sometime collaborator Bruce Springsteen, for good measure.

Check out fan-filmed footage of "Bulls on Parade" above and "Killing in the Name" below, as well as the full set list.
