Rage Against The Machine played a whole slew of hits at their first show in over a decade.
On Saturday night (July 9th), Rage Against The Machine took to the stage for the first time in 11 years at East Troy, Wisconsin’s Alpine Valley Music Theater. During the set, they played 15 of their biggest hits alongside a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ghost Of Tom Joad.” That cover was a staple in the band’s setlists in the late ’90s, and it was even recorded on their 2000 album, Renegades.
Alongside the cover, Rage Against The Machine played six tracks from their 1992 debut album like “Killing In The Name” and “Bullet In the Head.” They also played four tunes form 1996’s Evil Empire like “Bulls On Parade.” Lastly, the band performed five tunes from 1999’s The Battle Of Los Angeles.
