Rage Against the Machine is coming to an arena near you. The band announced a headlining tour that includes a stop at Detroit's Little Caesars Arena on Monday, July 13.

It's the band's first tour since 2011. Hip-hop duo Run the Jewels is also on the bill.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, Feb. 13, at 11 a.m. and can be purchased at,, Little Caesars Arena XFINITY box office, and

While chugging a $12 Budweiser in a taxpayer-subsidized sports stadium might seem at odds with Rage Against the Machine's smash-the-system ethos, the band knows that the best way to attack capitalism is from within.

According to a press release, 100% of all proceeds from its first three shows will go toward immigrant rights causes.

Below, revisit "Killing in the Name," the band's searing debut single.
