Rage Against the Machine’s March-May tour dates have been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, which has seen many US cities prevent mass gatherings.

In a statement about the delay, the band wrote “Due to the current outbreak and ban on public gatherings we are postponing the first part of our tour (March 26th-May 20th) with Run The Jewels. The safety and health of all those who come to our shows is of utmost importance to us.”

The band concluded by noting that all tickets currently held will be honoured for the new dates.

It’s the second impact the outbreak has had on Rage Against the Machine, who were due to headline Coachella this year. The festival has since been postponed, along with many other tours from various bands, including recently the Foo Fighters.

Recently, in light of the outbreak, fans have been sharing a Rage Against the Machine-inspired hand washing tutorial, among many others created with the ‘Wash Your Lyrics’ software.
