American band Rage Against the Machine is due for a comeback with a 2020 world tour. The rap-metal titans announced the tour on February 10.

The reunion tour titled 'Public Service Announcement' comes after a nine-year hiatus for the band. They previously announced warm-up shows and headliner performances for March, which will include events at Coachella, Boston Calling and Firefly. All original band members — vocalist Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk will be reuniting for the event. Their last tour was in 2011.

According to Rolling Stone, the 2020 world tour will take place over seven months, kicking off on March 26 at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas, and closing on September 12 in the Wiener Stadthalle indoor arena in Vienna, Austria. The band will perform at major US arenas over spring and summer, which includes a performance at Chicago's United Center on May 19. They will perform two consecutive nights, August 10 and 11, at Madison Square Garden in New York, before heading off to England for both the Leeds and Reading Festival.

According to Detroit Free Press, all the proceeds from the first three shows at El Paso, Texas; Las Cruces, New Mexico; Glendale, Arizona, "will go to immigrant rights" organizations, the band said in a statement. Additionally, portions from ticket sales, volunteering and donations will go to several charities and activist organizations throughout the year. Tickets will go on sale on February 13 and will be available on the official Rage Against the Machine website here.

Rage Against the Machine will be supported by hip-hop duo Run the Jewels (otherwise referred to as RTJ) on all the dates except three — May 19, July 17 and July 18.
