Vinnie Paul Property Declaration – Nov. 30, 2022

There can never be a PANTERA reunion without Vinnie and Dime. However, there is no better way to celebrate and honor Vinnie and Dime’s legacy than to bring the music of PANTERA directly to the fans. We are honored that Charlie and Zakk, their very close friends and musical brothers, will be sharing the stage with Philip and Rex to unleash the power of PANTERA live around the world.
