Where to See Rise Against in Concert in 2021
Rise Against is appearing at several of your favorite festivals throughout the remainder of 2021 – including Louder Than Life and Rebel Rock! Catch the post-hardcore band at these events in late September and intermittently throughout the year before they head to the UK in 2022.
The Chicago-bred band just completed their Nowhere Generation tour with Descendants and Spanish Love Songs, from July 30th through August 28th. In the months since, they’ve played huge music festivals like Summerfest, Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Riot Fest 2021, and more! After a year and a half away from the stage, Rise Against was more than ready to perform again… and show no signs of slowing down.
Rise Against became a model for how to tour in a post-pandemic world. Even with the rise of the delta variant, the band took every precaution to keep fans and bands safe – including mostly outdoor venues and a wholly vaccinated crew. This resulted in absolutely zero cases of COVID-19 and only one cancellation!
Tour attendees had a blast hearing all the new tracks from Nowhere Generation, the ninth Rise Against album released in June 2021. Singles like “Broken Dreams, Inc.,” “The Numbers,” and “Talking to Ourselves” are symbolic of the band’s mission over their two-decade career – which is to shed light on the world’s inequalities through powerful lyrics and punk rock melodies.
Rise Against has never been shy about sharing its political beliefs through music. This is apparent in Nowhere Generation – which tackles the morality of the economy and struggles of today’s youth, among other things. Critics noticed these themes and applauded the band for their resilience and influence over the last twenty-two years.
“The most impressive thing is how passionate Rise Against remain,” Kerrang! rote in their review of Nowhere Generation. “Twenty years in, and their revolutionary fire is still as relevant and as sadly needed as ever.” Rise Against has been the voice of a generation of rock fans for two decades, and they’ll keep going as long as you’ll have them!
Another thing to praise Rise Against for? Their intense touring schedule, as the band has been performing nonstop since July! They have several festivals lined up in the US before heading to the UK in 2022, and you need to get your tickets before they sell out! Check the tour schedule below and buy yours today.
