Rage Against the Machine
plan to record their first live album at a series of shows to be held at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore. The resulting album is scheduled for a November release on Epic Records.
The shows, which will take place July 25, 27 and 28 at the 1,200-capacity venue, will also serve as warm-up gigs for the band's impending Rhyme and Reason tour with the Beastie Boys
, which kicks off Aug. 2 in Toronto.
Rage will donate proceeds from the tour, one dollar for every ticket sold, to various non-profit charities and activist groups, including California Emergency Foodlink and New England Shelter for Homeless Vets, among others. Earlier this year, Rage donated more than $350,000 from the proceeds of their 1999 The Battle of Los Angeles
tour to charity.
