RATM free UK gig details to be announced this week
Last December frontman Zack de la Rocha and guitarist Tom Morello made a promise that if their song “Killing In The Name” makes it to the Christmas number one slot, they will play a free UK concert.
Rage Against The Machine won the chart battle for Britain’s Christmas number one singles with the re-release of their 1992 track against The X Factor frontrunner Joe McElderry’s “The Climb”— breaking the trend of number one songs by the show’s winners.
The so called “anti-corporate campaign” is backed up and started by Facebook fans to end the winning streak The X Factor holds—out selling the Miley Cyrus re-make by more than 50,000 sales.
“As promised we will play a free concert in the UK in celebration of this incredible upset victory over the heavily favored X Factor single, Zack confirmed following the victory.
