Rage Reportedly Will Appear at Vegoose
Rage Against the Machine’s reunion tour will roll on this fall. Billboard is reporting that the politically-charged rock band will headline the 2007 edition of Las Vegas’ Vegoose festival. The quartet reunited for the first time in seven years for a performance at Coachella in April and has since confirmed four shows on the Rock the Bells tour and an appearance at East Troy, WI’s Alpine Valley on August 24. The group will also make an appearance at New Orleans’ Voodoo Music Experience on October 27. Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello also made his Bonnaroo debut this June as the Nightwatchman and sat-in with festival headliners Tool during their Friday night set. Previous Vegoose headliners include Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Dave Matthews & Friends, Widespread Panic, Beck, Arcade Fire and the Killers. According to a local Las Vegas Fox News Station, Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty and the Killers will also appear at the festival, though their spots remain unconfirmed. As previously reported, Vegoose will return to the Sam Boyd Stadium on October 27 and 28 for the third year in a row. Festival promoters Superfly and AC Entertainment will also promote a series of late night shows around Las Vegas from October 26-28.
