Edinburgh Rage Against The Machine concert at Ingliston cancelled due to Zack de la Rocha medical guidance

Rage Against The Machine has cancelled its Edinburgh gig, just two weeks before the band was due to go on stage.

The American rock band was due to play at the Royal Highland Centre at Ingliston on August 24.

But members Brad Wilk, Tim Commerford, Tom Morello and Zack de la Rocha announced on social media that, due to medical advice given to de la Rocha, the show would not be able to proceed.

It is one of 13 concerts that will be cancelled, all of which were scheduled for August and September.

    The band said: “Per medical guidance, Zack de la Rocha has been advised that the August and September 2022 UK and European leg of the Rage Against The Machine tour cannot proceed.

    “It is with great disappointment that we announce this cancellation.

    "Rage Against The Machine will be finishing their run at Madison Square Garden on August 11, 12 and 14 and then Zack must return home for rest and rehabilitation.

    "The flights, travel time, and rigorous schedule in the UK and Europe are simply too much of a risk for a complete recovery.

    “We are so sorry to all of our fans who have waited years to see us and hope to Rage again soon.”

    They added that anyone with tickets should contact their point of purchase for refunds.
