One of the most anticipated concert tours of 2020 was scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s back on: Rage Against the Machine has announced that its Public Service Announcement tour with special guest Run the Jewels will now begin in March 2022.

The news was dropped by the hard-rock legends on Thursday in a message on social media.

The announcement comes after the tour was originally pushed back to 2021 before those dates, too, were scrapped due to the pandemic.

Noteworthy with the details of the new tour dates is a gap in the Southern California region. Rage Against the Machine was to be one of the headlining acts of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in 2020, before that mega-fest was postponed a handful of times before being cancelled entirely (with the next Coachella now set for April of 2022). With Rage on the road during this time frame and an absence of Southern California concerts on this new itinerary, it makes sense for them to presumably be penciled in for new Coachella shows.

Prior to the pandemic, interest in Rage’s music was undergoing a surge, even though the band hasn’t released a new album since the year 2000. Fueled by social unrest and protests stemming from the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement, Rage Against the Machine albums re-entered the Billboard charts in June 2020, and the reunion tour would have been coming at an absolutely perfect time for the group and its incendiary themes of social action.

Now, the shows are on track to resume after all — just a little bit later than originally planned. Here’s the full schedule of dates for the 2022 tour:
