However, via a statement on their official social media pages, the band confirmed they had been forced to cancel their entire European tour as per ‘medical advice’.
One of 13 scheduled gigs, Rage have also been forced to pull out of their scheduled appearances at the popular Reading and Leeds festivals in August.
"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” confirmed the band, before adding: "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.”
How can I get a refund for the cancelled Rage Against The Machine gig in Edinburgh?
While fans are understandably upset at the cancellation, getting a refund appears to be pretty straight forward.
The band advised via their statement that fans should be able to contact their point of purchase for any headline show regarding refunds – which in the case of Edinburgh would be Ticketmaster.
The popular ticket site has stated: “Refunds for cancelled events will be processed automatically to the original payment method used. Please allow 15 days from receiving notification of cancellation from us via email to receive your refund”.
