Rage Against the Machine’s reunion will include a show at the Tacoma Dome

Now that Rage Against the Machine is reunited, the rock band has decided to go on a world tour.

The seven-month tour stops at the Tacoma Dome April. 28.

Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Thursday at ticketmaster.com.

Incendiary rap duo Run the Jewels will open for the band.

Rage was one of the most influential rock bands of the ‘90s but stopped performing together in 2011.

That is, until last year when singer Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk reunited for several festival shows.

All proceeds from the first three shows of the tour will be donated to immigrant rights efforts.

Rage Against the Machine will also work with other charities and activist organizations through ticketing, volunteering and band donations, according to a news release.
