PANTERA has announced that their headlining concert at the 5,400-capacity Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile has been moved to the Movistar Arena, which can accommodate up to 17,000 fans. And that’s not all — SEPULTURA will also be performing at the show!
PANTERA said in a statement: “Our upcoming headline show at Caupolican Theater, Santiago sold out so quickly that we decided to move the show to Movistar Arena on 12/12. And SEPULTURA is now on the bill as well. Tickets available now.”
As previously reported, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante and OZZY OSBOURNE guitarist Zakk Wylde will join PANTERA‘s surviving members on a reunion tour.
According to Billboard, the lineup has been given a green light by the estates of the band’s founders, drummer Vincent “Vinnie Paul” Abbott and guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, as well as Brown, who last year said Wylde wouldn’t tour with PANTERA if a reunion were to happen. It’s unclear what changed his mind.
PANTERA will play its first shows in over 20 years in December 2022, starting with a co-headlining slot at Mexico’s Hell & Heaven Metal Fest and at Mexico’s Monterrey Metal Fest, followed by appearances at three Knotfest festivals in South America. There will also be a one-off show with JUDAS PRIEST in São Paulo, Brazil.
