Rage Against The Machine‘s residency at New York City’s Madison Square Garden has raised $1 million for charity.
“Charity tickets purchased by our fans for our five night Madison Square Garden residency raised $1,000,000,” the band wrote in a statement on Instagram. “These funds will be distributed to the Immigrant Defense Project and by WhyHunger to Neighbors Together and The Campaign Against Hunger in New York City.”
Rage Against the Machine played the five dates at Madison Square Garden after canceling their planned tour of the U.K. and Europe in order for frontman Zack De La Rocha to recover from an injury to his leg.
In June, Rage Against the Machine had pledged $475,000 to reproductive rights groups in Wisconsin and Illinois following the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court.
