Rage Against The Machine Joins Lizzo, Live Nation In Tour Donations – Deadline

UPDATE: A day after Lizzo pledged to donate tour proceeds to Planned Parenthood (a sum matched by producer Live Nation), Rage Against the Machine has made comparable plans.
The group stated Friday evening at a tour date and afterward Instagram that it’ll donate practically a half-million {dollars} to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois.
“We are disgusted by the repeal of Roe V. Wade and the devastating impact it will have on tens of millions of people,” the group wrote. “Over half of the country (26 states) is likely to ban or seriously restrict abortion very soon, if not immediately, which will have a disproportionate impact on poor, working class and undocumented BIPOC communities.”

Rage has raised $475,000 by the sale of charity tickets for his or her live shows at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in Elkhorn, Wis. and United Center in Chicago, Ill.
