Rage Against the Machine have cancelled the European leg of their reunion tour but will go ahead with their three-night run at Madison Square Garden starting tonight.

They wrote on social media that bandleader Zack de la Rocha had been instructed not to proceed with the intensive European run on the advice of his doctor. Cancelled dates including headline shows at Reading and Leeds festivals. North American dates early next year are scheduled to go ahead.

Although the band did not specify why, de la Rocha sustained a leg injury during a July 11 performance in Chicago. He concluded the set while seated on a monitor. The show ended with de la Rocha’s bandmates embracing him before crew members carried him off stage.
