UPDATE: This event has been postponed because of concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus.

PHOENIX — Rage Against the Machine has decided that one show in the Valley isn’t enough for its upcoming world tour.

The politically charged rap-rock pioneers added a second performance at Gila River Arena in Glendale as part of its seven-month “Public Service Announcement” world tour.

The second show will be April 1 with opening act Run the Jewels. Tickets for the show go on sale at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

All proceeds from the stops in Phoenix and El Paso, Texas, where the tour will kick off March 26, will be donated to immigrant rights groups, the band said.

The first show — in Glendale on March 30 — sold out quickly. The tour is set to run through a Sept. 12 show in Austria.

Rage Against the Machine formed in Los Angeles in 1991 and has since released four albums, the most recent in 2000.

The band last performed together live in 2011.

According to Setlist.FM, Rage’s last Arizona appearance was in December 1999 at America West Arena (now Talking Stick Resort Arena).
