This week there was a poster leaked on social media giving the dates to Rage Against The Machine’s world tour for 2020. It all started with the tweet below:

Sadly this has been confirmed to be fake. The only confirmed tour dates for RATM are the previously announced US gigs and the headline slots for Coachella. Some say they saw the poster on the official RATM instagram site before it was quickly removed
The anonymous larrikin has now told Wall of Sound that they were behind the fake poster.
“So, the insta was [Photo]shopped, the poster isn’t anything amazing but the Insta really sells it,” the person behind the poster told the publication. “I just changed the post count and time stamp of it haha.
“As far as why [I did it], I mean, I love a good troll hey. Plus how sick would it be if Rage did get their ass down here [Australia], and Splendour [festival] doesn’t seem too far out of the realm of possibility. Especially as it’s their 20th year.”
Well there you go, let’s hope it does encourage RATM to get down to Australia as soon as they bloody can.
