Pantera team with Lamb of God for powerhouse North American tour

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on January 20, 2023

The 20-date trek is bookended by confirmed appearances at some of the biggest domestic rock festivals including Welcome to Rockville and Aftershock.

Last year, the reincarnation of Pantera featuring  original members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown joined by Zakk Wylde (guitar) and Charlie Benante (drums) re-emerged triumphantly with a run on Mexico and South America that was the stuff of heavy metal legend. The run of festival shows, including plays at the Colombia, Chilean, and Brazilian editions of the Knotfest banner, saw capacity crowds welcome the Cowboys From Hell as the returned to the stage they dominated for so long.

The longevity of the line-up seemed even more promising when Pantera was then confirmed for several supporting dates on Metallica’s M72 World Tour set for 2023 and into 2024. While there had been a few domestic festival appearances confirmed for the band however, no other headlining North American dates were in the books – until now.

The new iteration of Pantera has confirmed a 20-date North American headlining tour and they have tapped one of the most respected bands in the game as their cross-country cohorts. Groove metal titans Lamb of God will join Pantera on the stretch of dates that kicks of July 28th in Burgettstown, PA and closes out in Bristow, VA on September 15th.

The highly-anticipated tour is bookended by several confirmed festival plays for Pantera. Prior to the tour, the band will take the stage at Welcome to Rockville in Florida, Rockfest in Cadott, WI. and Inkcarceration in Ohio. Following the run, Pantera is in for both Louder Than Life in Louisville, KY and has just been announced to appear at the showdown in Sacramento that is Aftershock.

A complete list of dates can be found below.

Tickets are set to go on sale starting Friday, January 27th starting at 10 AM Local Time on

Following the run of Latin American dates, drummer Charlie Benante shared an 8-minute compilation of friend and family-filmed footage that worked like a highlight reel framing the band’s return. It was a proper heavy metal party complete with plenty hair-whipping, circle pitting and even fire-breathing. Check the footage below.
