99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1999!
That year PLR welcomed Rage Against The Machine to New Haven Coliseum. RATM hit the road in 1999 to support their third studio album, “The Battle of Los Angeles,” which featured such singles as Guerrilla Radio, Testify, Calm Like a Bomb and Sleep Now in the Fire. It would be Rage’s last tour together before breaking up in October 2000. They’d reunite occasionally between 2007-2011. In 2021 the band hopes to have its first full-length tour since 2000.
Today we look back at Rage’s 1999 show in New Haven….
