Pantera perform live for the first time since 2001

Pantera 2022

Pantera has played their first live show with a new lineup, consisting of vocalist Phil Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown, joined by guitarist Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne) and drummer Charlie Benante (Anthrax). Tonight the band played the 'Hell & Heaven Metal Fest' in Toluca, Mexico. Videos of the set have been posted online by fans, which you can watch below. 

This is the first time in over two decades that a band under the Pantera banner has performed. The band last performed at Beast Feast in Yokohama, Japan on August 26, 2001.

Pantera was originally co-founded by Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. As a result of Pantera's breakup in 2003, the two formed Damageplan. Dimebag was later killed onstage at the Alrosa Villa in Columbus, Ohio, while performing with Damageplan on December 8, 2004. Vinnie Paul was found dead in his Las Vegas home on June 22, 2018, his death due to a heart condition. 

Wylde and Benante will join Anselmo and Brown for a world tour playing as the new Pantera lineup, as first reported in July. After a number of festival performances, the band will head out on its own headline tour. A North American stadium jaunt supporting Metallica will follow in 2023 and 2024.

anonymous 110 days ago

Who is writing this shit now? f*cking proof read.

rick_tocchet 110 days ago

Sounds pretty good. Good for them keeping that music alive. Dime and Vinnie deserve their work to be remembered. And yeah Vinnie didnt die in 2008. Jesus.

Pantene? Named after the shampoo? Never heard of 'em.

The domination medley shit was annoying even back in the day. Play the entire song. And throw that drummer on a click.. dude rushes everything way too hard

anonymous 110 days ago

Kyle Rittenhouse is a simp. Total f*cking clown baby whose life will be full of constant vigilance and looking over his shoulder. That constant fear and paranoia of doxxing HOPEFULLY will result in a mental health crisis where he takes his own life.

^he killed a convicted pedophile, he'll be fine

Phil actually sounds pretty f*cking good during Planet Caravan. Good work Phil. White Wine!!! https://youtu.be/TWDV2zYHdUQ

^^^Rittenhouse is a crybaby pedo. He's probably getting funky with his pedo buddies Gaetz and Milo rn. Hell, all Republicans seem to be pedos. All they do is talk about sexualizing children, grooming kids, they are sick people. Hell, they elected a pedo with Trump, a proven pedo. Look it up. Plus, he was best friends with Epstein and Ghislaine. Best friends with pedos. It's just so sad to see people get brainwashed by obvious pedos.

Approaching Mastodon level. They'll never be as big as Turnstile, though.

anonymous 109 days ago

^ real talk

anonymous 109 days ago

Crowd was more concerned with their phones, Phil barely moving around on stage. Still better than most of the garbage people listen to today.

Aren't leftists triggered by rebel flags? They don't know what or how to be outraged anymore.

Choosing to listen to Pantera in 2022 is like choosing to ride a bike 100 miles Over choosing a car. Pointless, regressive, proto version of good metal that is available today

anonymous 109 days ago

The excersize you mention is irrelevant, but you already knew that ODOYLE didn't you??

anonymous 109 days ago

I'm OLD GREEEEEggGG

anonymous 109 days ago

Pantera and Sabs are the best heavy bands in the world and this wrecks! I know it's all band losers on here. Someone said regressive? Only dorks here that crash with mom and dad in between playing 2 of 4 on shit club bills don't like this. You were blasting Saves the Day when Reinventing The Steel came out. ALL HAIL PHIL!!!

Holy f*ck this is worse than I imagined. Local band ass shit. Shameful. Don't give these grifter clowns your money

anonymous 109 days ago

They should open for Spiritbox in '23

anonymous 109 days ago

five minutes alone is about phillip anselmo learning that he loves men, and all he wants is five minutes alone in the closet

anonymous 109 days ago

This reminds me of the GNR 2.0 with buckethead and other random musicians. Feel f*cking bad, sounds worse. Time Travel isn't reel. You can never go back. Stop.

anonymous 109 days ago

Phil is Redneck Rollins.

anonymous 109 days ago

PANTERA ICHIBAN! Goddamn Pantera 3 was one of the funniest things to me and my friends back in the day.

anonymous 108 days ago

Neurosis, Biohazard, Pantera southern trendkill tour was my favorite show of all time. I'm not sure I would pay to attend this current lineup…maybe if tix were gifted/free. Pantera without Vinnie and Dime doesn't feel right to me.

anonymous 108 days ago

I only like this version of Pantera because Phil doesn't like black people and I can relate to that.

anonymous 108 days ago

^do you have syphilis?

anonymous 108 days ago

Don't get the hype, band sucked back then, they still suck now

excersize->White POWdER!!!!

anonymous 105 days ago

I love how Pantera die-hards for years were pining to reunite with Zakk on guitar because he got drunk with Dime on a few occasions. Now they got what they wanted and he's absolutely shitting the bed.

anonymous 104 days ago

was it: Walk on home, BOY! or Walk on HOMEBOY!

Imagine unironically thinking Phil Anselmo deserves a stage this big. Dudes walking the stage like a fat f*ck loser playing karaoke. Band sucks
