Changing the world one gig it a time, Prophets of Rage comes to Hollywood Casino Ampitheatre on Saturday 3rd September 2016 to play music and kick ass! Formed from members of three of the biggest politically charged bands of the last two decades – Rage Against the Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill – this mighty supergroup has come to bust out some rap rock and Make America Rage Again! Be there!
American supergroup Prophets of Rage formed in 2016. Consisting of members of Rage Against the Machine (bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk), alongside Public Enemy's Chuck D and Cypress Hill's B Real, their name was taken from the title of the Public Enemy song "Prophets of Rage" from the 1988 album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. Rage Against the Machine, Cyprus Hill and Public Enemy are all hugely successful, politically driven bands who rose to prominence in the late 1980s/early 1990s and have sold millions of records worldwide. In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Tom Morello said:"We're an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bulls***, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing."
