Launch Radio Networks reports: Tom Morello and Zack De La Rocha, the guitarist and singer, respectively, of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, took to the stage together for the first time in nearly seven years in Chicago on Saturday (April 14). Their appearance was part of a demonstration and rally-turned-celebration for the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, an organization of immigrant farm workers who pick vegetables for big businesses like McDonald's.

The rally was meant to be a protest, but just before the march was to begin, a McDonald's rep told the crowd their demands had been met. So the rally, due to inclement weather and that fact that it was now a celebration of the news of the agreement, moved indoors at the House of Blues.

The set started out with Morello coming out alone as THE NIGHTWATCHMAN, performing several songs from his upcoming "One Man Revolution" CD. After that, De La Rocha took the stage to perform a brand new song about the event that he had written on the plane ride from Los Angeles to Chicago.

At that point Morello joined in, and the duo performed the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE songs "People of the Sun", "Bulls on Parade" and "Down Rodeo."

I bet when the two started performing together the fans went absolutely, positively f***ing ballistic. God, the sound of the crowd must have been deafening.

Sweet Buddhachrist, I hope the entire band gets back for another album.
