Rage Against The Machine had their plans for a massive reunion tour disrupted by the pandemic – but the band doesn’t plan to compromise their eventual return.

In a recent interview, bassist Tim Commerford promised fans “We’ll never be one of these sellouts that’s gonna go play a drive-in show or play a venue that holds a hundred thousand people and there’s only ten thousand people there.”

Commerford added “It’s not a good show unless the audience is going off too – it’s gotta be a shared experience”.

RATM reunited for the first time since 2011 to headline last year’s Coachella festival, but that appearance and the band’s subsequent tour was postponed.

Have you attended any drive-in or socially distant concerts? Did it feel the same as a full crowd?
