Rage To Release CD/DVD Of Final Shows

Rage Against The Machine’s final shows are the subject of the upcoming “Live at the Olympic Auditorium” CD and DVD, due Nov. 18 via Epic. The Sept. 12-13, 2000, gigs at the Los Angeles venue found Rage tearing through tracks from throughout its career, as well as covers of the MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams,” Devo’s “Beautiful World,” Cypress Hill’s “How Could I Just Kill a Man,” EPMD’s “I’m Housin'” and Eric B & Rakim’s “Microphone Fiend.”
“Live at the Olympic Auditorium” was originally intended as a companion piece to the 2001 DVD “The Battle of Mexico City,” but never saw the light of day.
Just a month after the Olympic Auditorium gigs, Rage frontman Zach de la Rocha quit the group, citing a “decision-making process [that] has completely failed.” He has been working on his solo debut with numerous collaborators ever since, although no release date has been set. The remaining members of Rage (guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk) went on to join forces with Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell to form Audioslave.
The track list for the upcoming DVD is not yet finalized. A limited amount of CD/DVD combo packs will also be available.
