Rza Wants Wu-Tang Clan to Tour With Rage Against the Machine
If you managed to catch Rage Against the Machine and Wu-Tang Clan's tour two decades ago, consider yourself lucky. Unfortunately, their '90s-era run ended short when Wu-Tang pulled out due to internal conflicts. But with Rage reuniting for shows in 2020, Wu-Tang's Rza is hoping for a do over.
"I think it's a great thing for Rage to be reunited. Tom [Morello] and Zack [de la Rocha] getting back together and Coachella's gonna be exciting," Rza told TMZ, going on to suggest, "If the stars line up right, when they finish that Coachella one, they need to hook up with Wu-Tang and finish that tour we never finished."
He went on to add that he might contact the band's members to see if they'd be interested in hooking it up for 2020.
Rza says the pairing of the two socially minded acts would be perfect given the times we live in. "I think right now, the way the times are, we need Rage Against the Machine," he stated. "It's a perfect time for them, perfect energy for them and we think the climate is right for Rage like the climate is right for Wu-Tang. Let's rock the world." Watch the short interview below.
Last week, Rage Against the Machine announced a handful of dates for 2020, mostly centered in border states. Not long after the reunion was confirmed, Prophets of Rage's B-Real and Chuck D. spoke of their gratitude to their band for the time it was active, signifying that Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford were making Rage their main priority.
