Rage Against The Machine announce free gig
Christmas chart champions Rage Against The Machine have stayed true to their word and announced a free show in London later this year (6 June).
The veteran Los Angeles rockers promised to reward fans with a gig following the Facebook campaign that saw their 1992 hit 'Killing In The Name' catapulted to Xmas No.1 ahead of X Factor winner Joe McElderry's effort, 'The Climb'.
The headline-grabbing events saw the group thrust back into the limelight, even turning in an expletive-filled rendition of the hit on BBC Radio 5 Live, where four repeats of the track's angry refrain of "F*** you, I won't do what you tell me" were aired before transmission was cut.
Frontman Tom Morello praised the public - who also raised thousands of pounds for Shelter through the campaign - saying: "The people of the UK toppled the X Factor giant, raised a great deal of money for homeless charities, and shocked the world.
"As a thank you to our UK fans and freedom fighters we promised to play a free show. Well here we come. The celebration/party/revolution is ON!!"
The gig, open to those aged 16 and over, will take place in London's Finsbury Park on 6 June - to be in with a chance of getting tickets, fans need to register at theragefactor.co.uk before midnight on Sunday (16 February).
A lottery will then be held from 9am on 17 February.
