First Pantera Reunion Shows Announced as Part of Slipknot’s South American Knotfests

The first Pantera reunion shows have been announced as part of Slipknot’s South American Knotfest dates.

The reunited Pantera lineup, featuring original members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown alongside Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante, appear on all three bills: December 9th in Colombia; December 11th in Chile; and December 18th in Brasil.

Pantera will headline the Colombia edition alongside Judas Priest, with the rest of the bill rounded out by Bring Me the Horizon, Trivium, Hypocrisy, Sepultura, Suicide Silence, Sol, and more to be announced.

Slipknot will then arrive to join Judas Priest and Pantera as headliners for the Chile and Brasil Knotfests. Those bills feature Bring Me the Horizon, Mr. Bungle, Trivium, Sepultura, Motionless in White, Vended, and Project 46.

In addition, Slipknot and Judas Priest will each play one-off Knotfest Roadshow dates on December 8th and 13th, respectively, in Argentina — the first Knotfest shows to take place in the country.

The news of Pantera appearing on the Knotfest bill follows Benante’s prior remarks that the group would only be playing select shows. The drummer also brushed off detractors and those skeptical of the reunion, telling them, “Don’t come.”
