June 20, 2023 – AFAS Live, Amsterdam | It took 20 years, but Pantera is back! Call it a reunion and a celebration to the music of Pantera and the Abbott brothers, Vinnie and Dimebag.
In 2013 the band fell apart into two camps: Phil and Rex versus the Abbott brothers. Then on December 8, 2004 a madman jumped onto the stage at a Damageplan show – the brothers’ new outfit – and shot Dimebag Darrell dead. For many years fans speculated about a possible reunion but Vinnie wasn’t having it. However, times change because the Abbott brothers’ estate has given its blessing for an official Pantera reunion with Phil, Rex, Zakk Wylde and Anthrax’ Charlie Benante behind the kit. They will introduce the younger fans to the primeval power that is the music of Pantera.
