The remaining members of Pantera will embark on a much-anticipated reunion tour in 2023, over 20 years after the band split up, and they have contracted with Artist Group International to handle the booking of their North American dates. The accountable agents will be Dennis Arfa and Peter Pappalardo.
According to Pappalardo, “We are excited to be working with such a famous band and bringing their music back to the audience.”
With their blend of hardcore and thrash to produce a frightening sound that many bands have attempted to imitate, Pantera is one of the most popular and significant bands in the history of heavy metal. Pantera was founded by the late brother’s Vincent “Vinnie Paul” Abbott on drums and “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott on guitar.
After the release of their fifth album, 1990’s Cowboys from Hell, with new vocalist Phil Anselmo and the 1992 follow-up Vulgar Display of Power, Pantera gained mainstream success thanks to the accessibility of songs like “Walk.”
Pantera developed a reputation as one of the most hard-hitting major label acts of the 1990s by fusing raw fury and intensity with chunky thrash guitars and Anselmo’s deep rumbling range. Their most popular album, Far Beyond Driven, landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1994.
Pantera has sold more than 20 million albums, according to band representatives. They’ve also been nominated for four Grammys and achieved platinum status for five albums and three long-form videos. Reinventing the Steel, the most current album by the group was created in 2000, and it was then followed by a sabbatical in 2001.
While Vinnie passed away in 2018 from natural reasons, such as heart illness, “Dimebag” Darrell was murdered in 2004 while on stage at a concert with his band Damageplan in Columbus, Ohio. Unknown replacements for the brothers are expected for the tour.
Rex Brown, the band’s bassist, said categorically that a purported comeback with Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society on guitar was not happening when Anselmo revealed to podcaster Paolo Baron last year that he and Brown had been talking about a reunion tour for a few months.
Scott McGhee of 1 Degree Music Entertainment oversees Pantera’s management. Nick Ferrara and Associates is the band’s legal counsel. Rod MacSween at ITB has foreign bookings for Pantera.
