Tearing up the stage in the name of progress, these guys bring one hell of a show, filled with fan favorites and some brand new tracks!
Prophets of Rage is an American supergroup, consisting of Rage Against the Machine's bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk, with Public Enemy's Chuck D and Cypress Hill's B Real. Formed in 2016, their name was taken from the title of the Public Enemy song "Prophets of Rage" from their 1988 album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. Rage Against the Machine, Cyprus Hill and Public Enemy are all hugely successful, politically driven bands who rose to prominence in the late 1980s/early 1990s and have sold millions of records worldwide. In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Tom Morello said:"We're an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bulls***, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing."
