Prophets Of Rage in surprise rooftop performance

Supergroup Prophets Of Rage stage surprise show on rooftop in downtown Los Angeles

Prophets Of Rage have staged a surprise rooftop performance in downtown Los Angeles.

The supergroup featuring Rage Against The Machine men Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk and Tom Morello alongside Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill played a set in the Skid Row area of the city.

They performed tracks by each of their respective bands, a cover of Beastie Boys classic No Sleep Til Brooklyn, and Prophets Of Rage’s The Party’s Over.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in June, Morello hinted they could play "spontaneous venues." He said: “There's a thing called the Republican National Convention in July, and that will be a perfect place for a band like Prophets Of Rage to cause a ruckus – and we will be there on the streets, in the field.

“We have a venue and there may be venues that will be spontaneous venues, it's hard to say. This is the kind of thing you don't broadcast to the local authorities prior to arrival."

Earlier this month, D reported that while the band have been in the studio, he didn’t think they’d launch a full-length album.

Prophets Of Rage commence their first North American tour in August, with a date at Cleveland’s Agora scheduled for July 19.
