Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello will be on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson tonight, performing “Whatever It Takes” with Flea on bass. He’s also hittin’ the
road to support his solo album The Fabled
City
, which came out Sept. 30. The tour starts Nov. 1 in at The Fillmore in
San Francisco through Dec. 12 at the Anaheim House of Blues. More dates will be
announced.

 

 

The Fabled City is
the first album to bear Morello’s birth name as opposed to his alias The
Nightwatchman. It’s also the first to feature both the protest-folkie acoustic
material he recorded as The Nightwatchman and the manic, bounding electric rock
material for which he’s best known. System of a Down’s Serj Tankian and outlaw
country scion Shooter Jennings make appearances on the record. On tour, Morello
will play an acoustic set and full-band electric show. Boots Riley (The Coup) will open all the shows. Michael Franti will appear on the Philly date.

 

“I want to start off with the darker acoustic songs and then
build to some of the wildest electric guitar playing I have ever unleashed on
stage in my career,” says Morello. “The idea is half Dylan/half Hendrix. I have
been practicing my ass off and can’t wait to rock.”

 

The Nov. 3 show in Seattle will be with Pearl
Jam’s Mike McCready’s band Shadow ’86 and Stone Gossard with the Hank
Khoir to promote voter participation. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Oct. 11.
