Tom Morello Announces Solo Spring 2019 U.S. Tour Dates
Prophets of Rage guitarist Tom Morello will set out on a U.S. tour later this year in support of his recent solo album, The Atlas Underground. So dubbed by the Rage Against the Machine member as "The Atlas Underground LIVE: The Last Big Event Before We All Go To Jail," the trek will cover much of the country throughout May.
Speaking to us last fall at the Bowl for Ronnie event in L.A., Morello stated, "I'm working on a show for 2019 that in the same way we tried to challenge musical boundaries on the record, we’re going to try to flip the idea of what a traditional rock and roll show is. It will not remind you of a traditional rock and roll show at all. It’s going to be part art installation, part lots of kick ass shredding guitar solos and so that if Wu-Tang Clan and Marcus Mumford come, it’ll be great, but if not there’s still plenty that will be moshpit and dancefloor worthy as well."
The "Atlas Underground LIVE" tour will also make a few festival stops on its run. Tom Morello will play at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Welcome to Rockville in Florida, the Epicenter Festival North Carolina and the Sonic Temple Festival in Ohio. See the dates listed below.
