Rage Against the Machine is postponing the first part of their tour due to concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) including the El Paso and Las Cruces shows.

The recent coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has been to blame for the recent cancellations of sports, festivals and school events across the world including concerts. Rage Against the Machine is now the latest band to postpone its upcoming tour dates which was set to kick off in El Paso, TX on March 26th followed by the show in Las Cruces on March 28, 2020.

Below is a statement that UTEP’s Don Haskin Center received by the team at AEG Presents in regards to the Rage Against The Machine Show:

"Due to the current outbreak and ban on public gatherings we will have to postpone the first part of our tour (March 26th-May 20th) with Run the Jewels. The safety and health of those who come to our shows is of utmost importance to us. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for newly scheduled shows. As it stands, the July and August tour is still on. We will be in touch about rescheduled dates."

The band also took to social media to break the news to their fans by posting:

As much as hardcore Rage fans were looking forward to the concert, the truth is that most of these touring bands are postponing shows because they are looking out for the welfare of their fans and everyone’s community – and who can argue with that?
