Heavy metal icons PANTERA
will return to the stage on February 20 at Van Andel Arena
on the second leg of their North American headlining tour. The journey follows the band’s massively successful twenty-city run this past Summer, a tour which stood as one of the most anticipated tours of 2023, as well as their dates supporting Metallica. Featuring classic members, vocalist Philip H. Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown, alongside guitarist Zakk Wylde and drummer Charlie Benante, the latest stretch of live dates continues the celebration of the lives of late founding members, drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell.
The band will again be joined by special guests, acclaimed metal powerhouse Lamb Of God,
with additional support acts to be announced in the weeks to come.
Ticket presales and VIP upgrades begin Tuesday, November 14 at 10AM. General on sale date is Friday, November 17 at 10AM at VanAndelArena.com.
“Looking forward to jamming with everybody! These shows mean a lot and we aim to kick ass! Love y’all,” comments Anselmo.
"We're really excited to announce new dates in 2024. Looking forward to bringing the show to some cities we missed in 2023. Come jam,” adds Brown.
PANTERA was recently confirmed to play the 2024 edition of Download Festival. The performance will mark the band’s first UK appearance in three decades! Additionally, fans can catch PANTERA supporting Metallica on the remaining dates of their North American stadium tour this August. See all confirmed dates below. "When a newly restructured PANTERA took the stage at Milwaukee’s American Family Insurance Amphitheater, the chorus of cheers that greeted them was a voluminous mix of both excitement and disbelief." -- Illinois Entertainer "...a true tribute to the legacy of the Abbott brothers and the music they helped create. It is also a gift to the many fans that have gotten goosebumps from the raw power that PANTERA is able to harness like no other band." -- The Intelligencer "...an emotional tribute to the music the quartet made." -- TribLIVE "Anselmo, Brown, Wylde, and Benante masterfully honored the band’s legacy while embracing a new chapter, standing as a testament to the indomitable spirit of heavy metal. In a genre defined by resilience, PANTERA’s triumphant return is nothing short of remarkable." -- All Music Magazine "As PANTERA closed its set with the opening riff of 'Cowboys From Hell' playing behind them, Anselmo asked the packed stadium who would come to see them in the future. The response would be one of the evening’s loudest." -- Dallas Observer
Creators of the "power groove,” PANTERA got their start in Arlington, Texas with its best-known lineup, consisting of founding members and brothers, drummer Vinnie Paul and guitarist Dimebag Darrell, with bassist Rex Brown and vocalist Philip H. Anselmo. The group would become one the most successful and influential bands in heavy metal history. To date, PANTERA has sold 20 million records worldwide and has received four Grammy nominations along with sold out arena tours across the globe. https://pantera.com https://www.facebook.com/Pantera https://www.instagram.com/panteraofficial https://twitter.com/pantera About Live Nation Entertainment:
