PANTERA TO OPEN FOR METALLICA ON SELECT TOUR DATES
Metallica has announced tour dates for 2023 and 2024, including a host of shows with support from the newly reformed Pantera. It includes two shows in each city visited, and Metallica promises completely different setlists and opening bands at each stop.
Pantera will support Metallica at the following shows:
Aug. 4 – East Rutherford, NJ – Metlife Stadium
Aug. 11 – Montreal, Canada – Stade Olympique
Aug. 18 – Arlington, TX – AT&T Stadium
Aug. 25 – Los Angeles, CA – SOFI Stadium
Sep. 1 – Phoenix, AZ – State Farm Stadium
Nov. 3 – St. Louis, MO – The Dome (At America’s Center)
Nov. 10 – Detroit, MI – Ford Field
Aug. 2 – Foxborough, MA – Gillette Stadium
Aug. 9 – Chicago, IL – Solider Field
Aug. 16 – Minneapolis, MN – US Bank Stadium
Aug. 23 – Edmonton, Canada – Commonwealth Stadium
Aug. 30 – Seattle, WA – Lumen Field
Additional support at all the above dates will come from Mammoth WVH.
As previously reported, Pantera — featuring surviving members Rex Brown(bass) and Philip Anselmo (vocals) along with guitarist Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society) and drummer Charlie Benante(Anthrax) — will also headline a number of major festivals across North America, South America and Europe and stage some of their own headline concerts.
What a monster lineup and WVH (big fan of). Maybe they will add more U.S. dates??
No they won’t. For years Metallica has only played a limited amount of shows per year. It’s to prevent burnout and keep their marriages intact. These are all the shows Metallica will be playing for the next couple of years, with the exception of special events, such as the Grammys or the Super Bowl – god forbid!
With Meh-tallica’s new forthcoming album, the setlists will now have even fewer songs that fans would rather hear.
Man, I hope they add a San Francisco date .
I sure hope they add more U.S. dates.
They allege they’re not adding anymore dates. As Medved said, only special gigs and that’s what the Metclub heads have confirmed. I’ll believe it when I see it, though. I’ll be at the Seattle show and Rattlehead got it right that they’ll play new songs and the same old classics from the first 4 albums. No doubt they’re slowing down. They haven’t been over to Australia in quite sometime so I expect they’ll finally get over there next year. Raking the cash making up for their last 3 projects. Cheers
