The 90’s Called and They’re Moving Back In

by Tammie Birdwell

By now, everyone has seen a new version of a television show or movie we used to love in the 80s and 90s. Most of us can agree that the originals are usually better. 

Well, we have some good news for you today. The ‘90s called and some of our favorite artists are making a comeback in 2020—and we get to see the originals. 

Rage Against the Machine 

Since the ‘90s, we haven’t heard much from Rage Against the Machine musically. So, in late 2019, the band’s announcement that it would perform at Coachella immediately went viral. Later, an Instagram post on the band’s page appeared to announce spring and summer tour dates throughout the United States and Europe. Someone later came forward and admitted the post was a hoax. 

Don’t despair, though, because although the band hasn’t officially announced any further dates, it’s hard to keep these things under wraps once the bands start to book a venue. According to Live for Live Music, RATM will perform at Boston Calling at the end of May 2020 with more dates to be announced.

Alanis Morrisette 

Long before the #metoo movement, powerful women everywhere had Alanis Morrisette to look up to. Not long after RATM made their announcement, music lovers everywhere rejoiced when Morrisette announced a full tour in 2020 called “Celebrating 25 Years of the Jagged Little Pill.” 

And if that’s not exciting enough, ‘90’s icons Garbage and Liz Phair plan to join Morrisette. If you’re interested, check out the tour dates here before all the tickets sell out. 

Ministry, KMFDM, and Front Line Assembly 

And finally, if industrial music was your thing in the ‘90s, you’re going to be stoked to learn about the most recent tour announcement of the bunch. Ministry, KMFDM, and Front Line Assembly have teamed up for “The Industrial Strength Tour.” This tour kicks off July 1st in Seattle. If you want to catch this show, check out the full list of tour dates on Ministry’s website.

Rockin’ in the ‘20s — ‘90s Style 

As you can see, no matter what sort of music you were into in the ‘90s, it’s highly likely that you’re going to get to see one of your favorite acts this summer.
