After almost two decades Pantera is back on the road with the classic members Phil Anselmo (Vocals) and Rex Brown (Bass), accompanied by guitarist Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society) and drummer Charlie Benante (Anthrax). The tour that starts in South American in December, 2022 will honor the legacy of the group and the two late members Vinnie Paul (Drums) and Dimebag Darrell (Guitar).
The group was formed in 1982 in Arlington, Texas and started as a Glam Metal band, later on changing their sound. It was with the release of their fifth album “Cowboys From Hell” (1990) that the band became famous, releasing more four successful records: “Vulgar Display of Power” (1992), “Far Beyond Driven” (1994), “The Great Southern Trendkill” (1996), “Reinventing the Steel” (2000).
Guitarist Zakk Wylde, who was a friend of the late Dimebag Darrell, talked in an interview with Danny Wimmer Presents (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) about the upcoming reunion, saying:
“When Vinnie was still alive, when the fellows were all talking about doing it, I just always told ’em, I said, ‘Of course I would… If you asked me, why would I not do it? I’m gonna honor Dime.”
