    looks like Pantera are going on tour with the knotfest in south america. Zakk Wylde on guitar with dimebag old guitar tech and gear and the drummer from Anthrax drummer Charlie Benant replacing Vinnie Paul.Will they be any good. the abbots for me were the heart and soul of pantera and i think Rex and Phil should've left it alone but in saying that if they come to dublin ill probably will go.

  • Registered Users Posts: 26,739 ✭✭✭✭ Wanderer78

    i think they ll do a good job of it, phil is probably doing well financially, but rex on the other hand.....

    oh and i hate all attendees of this gig, no im not jealous, i just hate you all equally!

    From an optics perspective, it really should be PA, RB & Friends play Pantera, rather than going by the band name but if they do make it here at some point next year I will 100% go see em. I never had the chance to see the classic line up so this would do instead.

    Was at that gig alright. Still have the stub here on my wall. I'd definitely one of the most memorable gigs for me but it's a toss up between it and the prvious with AIC in support.

    Yeah I was there. My friend and I were getting our tickets inspected at the door when we heard A New Level starting up and we legged it all the way to the front...they were brilliant and far better than Megadeth* that night I thought (I wasn't a huge fan of Countdown tbh and remain so). I saw Pantera in the SFX the following February and they weren't as good.

    *Megadeth on the Rust in Peace tour April '91 were incredible though; what a gig that was (The Almighty and AIC supporting)...Priest the night before on the Painkiller tour in the SFX as well (supported by Annihilator) - great couple of days!

    I'm not a fan of Anselmo and Rex touring as Pantera either; I seem to remember they were trying to get back together when Dime and Vinnie Paul were alive, who both wanted nothing to do with it. I suppose there are lots of people who'd be keen having never seen them when they were originally together, but not for me.

    "Megadeth on the Rust in Peace tour April '91 were incredible though; what a gig that was (The Almighty and AIC supporting"

    That was unreal.

    I got Nick Menzas drum stick - the 12 hole Docs were great to stick it into to hide it from the others ! 😀

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,398 ✭✭✭ Shred

    Ha, nice one! 😀

    Actually that reminds me, at least from where I was standing, Menza's left kick wasn't coming through the PA properly...other than that it was phenomenal. There was some other show on the nights before or after it which meant roughly 2 thirds of the Point was seated; the third that wasn't was lively as hell - I can remember plenty of heads were using the staggered separation barriers to launch themselves off of 😆

    R.I.P. Menza, what a drummer he was.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,696 ✭✭✭ greenspurs

    Dead right. Yes , there were seats . I can remember heading back a few times for a breather! 😄

    I bought a cassette bootleg of it on OConnell bridge a few weeks later on my way to another gig.

  • Have you seen the price of Docs these days !!!!! They've gone like guitars too, you have Doc Asia and a Doc made in the UK with the wood still in them!!!!
