Boston Calling also confirmed on Thursday that the band will drop off the festival lineup, scheduled for May 27th–29th. In its announcement, Rage Against The Machine stated that “headline shows scheduled for March 31, 2022 through May 23, 2022 will be postponed and rescheduled.”

This comes as the latest postponement for the highly anticipated Rage Against The Machine reunion tour, first announced in February 2020. The summer tour was postponed to the following summer as the COVID situation worsened around the world. The band was set to perform for the first time since 2011 at Coachella this coming spring, but dropped off the festival shortly before the lineup was announced last week.
