Tom Morello And Friends Take Justice Tour To West Coast

Tom Morello's Justice Tour is set to visit LA, San Francisco and Seattle starting this week. The shows will feature special guests The MC5's Wayne Kramer, Slash, Serj Tankian, Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Steve Earle, Soundgarden's Kim Thayil & Ben Shepherd, Mudhoney's Mark Arm, The Coup's Boots Riley, Anti-Flag, Shooter Jennings. Each date will include a day of activism alongside partner organizations benefiting the homeless and service groups and an evening of music with Morello, featuring a variety of very special guests.

These musicians will perform individual sets, as well as contribute to unique, once-in-a-lifetime collaborations with the other performers. One hundred percent of the Justice Tour profits will benefit homeless advocacy and service groups. The artists will also participate in hands-on volunteer work with these organizations.

"The model of the Justice Tour is simple," said Morello. Feed the Poor. Fight the Power. Rock the Fuck Out. "I'm very excited to be doing this and jamming with my good friends on the various stops on the tour. I'm equally excited that these artists will be rolling up their sleeves to help alleviate hunger and homelessness in these hard times." Morello also noted, _"It is very important to me to keep ticket prices super cheap so that everyone can enjoy these very special concerts."

Tickets for all dates are now on sale. How to buy tickets at www.axisofjustice.org.
