Rage Against the Machine played their highly anticipated and sold out show last night at the
The concert was not like one I had seen before, the males in the audience were high fiving and taking group shots of one another like girls at a bar on a Saturday night. Rage Against the Machine’s front man, Zach de la Rocha, did not short the crowd on his performance, I had no idea he was such a front man. Despite the fact they took an 8 year hiatus, they still have it as a live band. And I have been to a lot of concerts in my life, but I have never seen a crowd like I have on the floor last night.
While there were extra cops and riot control on hand to deal the ‘unruly fans’ after the concert, Zach de la Rocha made a comment to the audience before he closed the show to ‘by no means be passive, but please leave peacefully’ – I thought that was cool of him to say and well needed considering how young and naïve some of the audience was. All in all I was glad I went for the experience and to be one of the people in 20 years to say “I’ve seen Rage Against the Machine.”
