Rage Against the Machine have pulled out of Reading and Leeds Festivals due to medical issues, the band announced.

The musicians were set to headline the main stage in Reading on Sunday, August 28, but singer Zack de la Rocha cannot attend following ‘medical guidance’.

In a statement on their offical Facebook page, 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”

The news comes after it was reported that Måneskin cancelled their appearance at Reading and Leeds due to "unforeseen scheduling conflicts”.
