The year of amazing reunions rolls on with news Friday morning (Nov. 1) that Rage Against the Machine will reunite for a pair of 2020 headlining slots at the Coachella Festival.
An industry source familiar with the festival confirmed the booking to Billboard after the news broke earlier in the day via a post on an unverified Instagram account under the group's name. That post also noted three other shows, two of which are in towns along the Texas/Mexico border; at press time, Billboard had not confirmed the veracity of those dates.
The source verified the Apr. 10 and 17 Coachella dates, though the festival has not yet announced its 2020 lineup. The three other cities cited in the Instagram post -- which featured the same photo of Chilean protesters taking to the streets to demand politcal reforms posted by guitarist Tom Morello earlier in the week -- are El Paso, Texas; Las Cruces, New Mexico; and Phoenix, which all have arenas and stadiums where the stridently political, outspoken band could potentially play.
