Prophets Of Rage fans are up in arms after the supergroup cancelled seven tour dates without explanation.

The band – which features Rage Against The Machine men Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk and Tom Morello alongside Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill – announced a 34-date North American tour this month.

But they’ve since cancelled the dates in Hartford, Virginia Beach, Wantagh, Burgettstown, Noblesville, Albuquerque and Tulsa. No explanation for the cancellations has been given but both Ticketmaster and Live Nation have confirmed the shows are off, according to Loudwire.

Fans on Prophets Of Rage’s official Facebook page have repeatedly asked whether the gigs will be rescheduled.

One fan, Erin Spears, writes: “Are you guys even going to acknowledge the cancelled shows, or provide fans a reason? Kinda shitty.”

Some fans report that they were given automatic refunds for the cancelled dates on the tour, billed as the Make America Rage Again tour.

Meanwhile, the band have replaced the cancelled August 23 Hartford show with a gig in Montreal and the cancelled August 28 Wantagh show with a performance in Uncasville, CT.

They’ve also confirmed that Awolnation will be main support on all dates except for a newly-announced show in Cleveland on July 19.

The band made their live debut in Los Angeles in May.
