Music journalist Nui Te Koha has let slip that RATM and Alice Cooper will be headlining the mysterious Soundwave Revolution in September, after chatting to media mogul Eddie McGuire on commercial radio yesterday. According to Triple M, they are ““the hot tip to be doing shows across Australia in 2011”.

Te Koha further continued to spill the beans, saying “There’s a huge rumour doing the circuit that Rage Against The Machine will be here in September for Soundwave Revolution. Alice Cooper together [with Rage Against The Machine] will be headliners for Soundwave Revolution.” Cooper himself has given credence to the rumours by telling another media outlet that he would be playing a festival in Australia.
