Fans of Rage Against The Machine were elated at the announcement of the return of the much-missed band for 2020. However, following the news that the band has booked a world tour this week, some expressed outrage at the high cost of tickets for the headline shows. Fans and haters have slammed the band, known for their activism and protests for being greedy at the high cost for shows (non-festivals). The band took some measures against scalpers as they have bought 10% of all the tour tickets to ensure those tickets are sold from the band – at a premium cost, but the extra money going to charity. In the midst of all of this, RATM guitarist and activist Tom Morello has taken to Twitter to assure fans that the high cost of tickets is due to scalpers and resellers. Tom claims that the full price for all tickets tops out at $125.00 USD. A high cost, for sure, but lower than many other concert tickets to other tours in 2020.
The MOST expensive ticket for ANY Rage Against The Machine/Run the Jewels headline show is $125 US (plus service fees) with the exception of CHARITY tickets where 100% of the additional proceeds go to charity. ANY other ticket at ANY other price is from SCALPERS.
