Rage Against The Machine Perform ‘Fistful Of Steel’ Live: Look + Listen

Wrapping up the 2022 leg of their Public Service Announcement reunion tour at New York’s Madison Square Garden, for the first time since 1997 Rage Against the Machine broke out “Fistful of Steel” during their second-to-last show on Friday night (8.12.)

A deep cut from their 1993 self-titled LP, the legendary rockers played nearly every song from the LP at some point during the tour except for “Settle For Nothing,” which they haven’t played out since 1993. The lion’s share of performed songs throughout the tour came from the band’s three studio albums, along with Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ghost of Tom Joad” from their covers collection Renegades, “No Shelter” from the Godzilla soundtrack, and Run the Jewels’ “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck).”

Originally scheduled to tour Europe later this month, Rage canceled those shows in an effort to give frontman Zach de la Rocha time to recover from his leg injury. Taking to social media the band wrote “Zack must return home for rest and rehabilitation.” “The flights, travel time, and rigorous schedule in the UK and Europe are simply too much of a risk for his complete recovery. We are so sorry to all of our fans who have waited years to see us and hope to rage again soon.”

Rage Against the Machine are not scheduled to resume their shows until February 22, 2023, when the tour picks up again at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Until then they have dates at arenas throughout North America thru April 2 in Detroit.
