Rage Against The Machine To Perform with Susan Boyle?

by | Mar 31, 2010

Rage Against The Machine hope to perform with Susan Boyle at their upcoming London, UK show in June.

Frontman Zack De La Rocha told The Sun newspaper: “Simon [Cowell] seemed to think it was a bullying campaign but the truth is the British people wanted a change. I don’t think anybody has heard anything of that Joe guy since Christmas, but we have nothing against him. The truth is Simon’s shows occasionally produce talent.”

“We love Susan Boyle, she is hot. To show there are no hard feelings we would like her to perform with us on stage this summer. She is a great vocalist and we would love to perform ‘Killing In The Name’ with her. Everybody knows her in the US and she can add vocals to anything. It would be an honour for us.”

The band will be playing an upcoming free concert in London at Finsbury Park on June 6 as a thanks to fans for helping them top the Christmas chart.
