    Pantera to Reunite for 2023 Tour

    The surviving members of Pantera are set to reunite in 2023 for his or her first tour in over 20 years.

    Billboard reviews that singer Philip Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown have signed a cope with Artist Group Worldwide to ebook their upcoming North American dates. “We’re thrilled to be working with such an iconic band and bringing their music again to the followers,” agent Peter Pappalardo mentioned in a press release.

    It’s unclear who will probably be becoming a member of Anselmo and Brown on the highway for the tour. Guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell was murdered throughout a present in Ohio in 2004, whereas his brother Vinnie Paul died in 2018 from coronary heart illness.

    In an interview in 2019, Anselmo teased the likelihood of a Pantera tribute tour with Brown and guitarist Zakk Wylde, a longtime pal of the band.

    “Nicely, Zakk is a busy man … We spoke about it possibly one time,” Anselmo informed Chile information outlet Humo Negro. “If every thing was lined up, I’d do it, certain. F**okay yeah! Why not?”

    “I’m open for something. And Rex and I, we’re in contact and we discuss. We’re mates and every thing’s cool,” Anselmo added. “So, I preserve an open thoughts, I preserve an open thoughts. We’ll see sooner or later.”

    Rumors of Wylde taking part in a Pantera reunion really date again to 2014, when Anselmo joined Wylde onstage for a rendition of Pantera’s “I’m Damaged” throughout Down’s tour with Black Label Society. Brown later joined the duo when the tour handed by means of Texas, additional intensifying rumors.

    Nonetheless, the thought of Wylde stepping in for the late “Dimebag” Darrell was repeatedly dismissed by Vinnie Paul, who remained estranged from Anselmo till the drummer’s personal dying. Vinnie Paul harbored resentment towards Anselmo, who made inflammatory feedback about Dimebag in {a magazine} interview shortly earlier than the guitarist was slain onstage.

    The reunion by no means got here to fruition as Vinnie Paul and Anselmo remained on non-speaking phrases whereas the drummer was alive. That mentioned, it was Vinnie Paul’s passing that impressed Anselmo to revisit the Pantera materials along with his band the Illegals.

    “The very last thing on my thoughts, earlier than all this occurred, was actually taking part in Pantera songs,” Anselmo informed Humo Negro, “…after which Vince died. After which it was, like, ‘F**okay, man.’ Issues received essential.”
