Well it looks like you don’t have to wait too long to see Pantera live, for the band just announced their first show, which is taking place this year! In just a few months, the band will once again return to the stage for the first time in almost two decades.
Come this December, the band will be taking part in Knotfest: South America! Pantera will be performing in several shows that are part of Knotfest: South America, playing in Brazil, Chile, and Columbia. The band will be playing alongside such bands as: Trivium, Sepultura, Judas Priest, Bring Me The Horizon, Venom, Mr. Bungle, Vended, and many more. And here we were thinking we would be having to wait until next year to see the band live again! This information has been provided thanks to a recent post made on the Slipknot Instagram account (which you can find below).
How many of you will be attending these shows?! Keep a look out for more updates as they arrive regarding more shows. Recently, Tommy Buckley of Crowbar shared his two-cents regarding these upcoming band shows. Anthrax bassist Frank Bello has also recently talked about Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante sitting in as drummer for Pantera, and how he is the right guy for the job.
Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Zoltan Bathory also threw in his two-cents regarding these upcoming band shows, in part sharing: “Well, here’s the thing: it’s gonna be a Pantera cover band, really, if you think about it — even though there are previous members [of Pantera involved]. The fans would want to hear that; otherwise it wouldn’t be happening.”
What are your thoughts regarding this Pantera celebration? Do you intend on going to one of these shows?
