Finally, after a excruciatingly lengthy weekend of boiling curiosity, Rage Against the Machine fans collectively blew off steam today as the band’s perplexing website, ratm82407.com, revealed its true meaning. And it’s not a reunion album, an Ann Coulter bombing, or even a protest march, but a one-off concert slated for Aug. 24 at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin. The show, billed with fellow rockers Queens of the Stone Age, is allegedly the band’s only Midwestern gig. Tickets for the show go on-sale June 16 at 10 A.M. CST. RATM fans in California and New York can catch the band’s oft-rabid performance this summer on the Rock the Bells tour.
