Audioslave is once again together for ‘anti-inauguratieconcert’
Rock band Audioslave is Friday again, time for a ‘anti-inauguratieconcert’ in Los Angeles.
The group, consisting of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine bandmates Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk, stopped ten years ago.
The concert runs according to Morello, especially, to protest. “The anti-inauguration ball is a celebration of the resistance. Resistance against racism. Resistance against sexism. Opposition to homophobia. Opposition to bullying. Opposition to environmental devastation. Resistance against fascism. Opposition to Donald Trump,” said the musician in a statement to Billboard.
Morello is now a member of a newer gelegenheidsband; together with his Rage Against The Machine-colleagues, and Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill is he Prophets of Rage. That group is the initiator of the concert, and also occurs.
Other musical guests include Jack Black, Vic Mensa, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir. The concert was shortly after the announcement Tuesday is already sold out, but is also streamed on the Facebook page of Prophets of Rage.
