The Battle of Los Angeles Tour was a 1999–2000 concert tour by the band Rage Against the Machine in support of their album The Battle of Los Angeles. It had six legs: one for promotional shows around the world, two European legs, an Asia leg and the other in the US and Canada. Rage Against The Machine had planned to tour with the Beastie Boys on the 2000 "Rhyme and Reason" tour; however, the tour was canceled when Beastie Boys drummer Mike D suffered a serious injury. The band had also planned to tour Australia and New Zealand for the second time, but the tour never happened because the band broke up.

This was the last tour Rage Against the Machine performed together on before breaking up on October 18, 2000.
