Tom Morello, guitarist and social justice activist, is set to tell his life story at Minetta Lane Theatre this September. The three-night engagement will revisit Morello's musical career - playing with bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band - and will explore how music has complemented his activism. 

Presented by Audible, the series, Tom Morello at the Minetta Lane, will take place on September 18th, 19th and 20th. T Bone Burnett, the event's executive producer, has said, "Tom Morello makes profound American music, and his story is a profound American story."

Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 16th, at Noon ET. For tickets to this limited event, click here. The show will also be recorded and released exclusively on Audible. 

In a statement Tom Morello said: "I was the only black kid in an all-white town, the only anarchist at a conservative high school, the only heavy metal guitarist at Harvard University, and the only Ivy League Star Trek nerd in the biggest political rap rock band of all time. The songs, the stories, the triumphs, the tragedies, the riffs, the rebellion - all will be revealed. Oh, and I'm going to play a lot of ripping guitar, too."

Tom Morello is due to release a new book of his career, Whatever It Takes, with Genesis Publications. For more information and to register your interest in this upcoming edition, click here
