After revealing their lineup and announcing tonight’s inaugural (and already sold out) show at the Whisky A Go-Go earlier this morning on The Kevin & Bean Show, the supergroup Prophets Of Rage have announced a follow up show this Friday night at the Hollywood Palladium.
Wristbands are $20 and go on sale Thursday at 10am at the Palladium box office. No line-ups before 8am. There is a 4 wristband limit (cash only). If needed, any tickets remaining will be made available online at Ticketmaster.com starting at 12pm — ticket delivery delay set-up until the morning of the show.
All proceeds benefit PATH (People Assisting The Homeless.)
Prophets Of Rage consists of Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk from Rage Against The Machine with Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord.
“This is a Woodstock moment for us,” said Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chuck D on The Kevin & Bean Show. “This is our Crosby Stills and Nash, Woodstock moment.”
“It’s a historical necessity,” continues Morello. The last time Rage played in LA we out-drew Trump, Clinton and Bernie Sanders by about a margin of three times. This is not just music, this is a movement.”
The band did address the absence of Rage’s singer. “It takes me and B-Real to do Rage-ified Zach de la Rocha songs so a marching salute out to him,” says Chuck D. Rage members spoke to de la Rocha about their plans to form a super group and according to Wilk they received his blessing to move forward.
“This is not Rage Against the Machine and this is not Cypress Hill or Public Enemy, it’s a super group; one of the greatest super groups ever,” insists Chuck D.
