Pantera 2022 Shows: See Wild Wrap-Up Video Shot by Techs, Friends and Family

Drummer Charlie Benante shared 8-minute compilation covering 7 shows

On Sunday, December 18th, Pantera played their final show of 2022, rocking Knotfest Brasil at Sambódromo Do Anhembi in São Paulo to wrap up the groove-metal pioneers' first tour in over 20 years. Looking back on the momentous run, drummer Charlie Benante (also of Anthrax) has posted an eight-minute video compilation cutting together clips filmed by techs, friends and family members, mostly from side stage, encompassing all seven 2022 performances. It includes some amazing views of the massive mosh pits and even fire-blowing fans who greeted Pantera's return. Watch above.

In the description of his YouTube post, Benante wrote: "Here is our view of some clips Compiled by techs, friends and Family members of our first tour as Pantera. I was blown away by the reaction from the audiences , there were times I wanted to stop playing and just enjoy the sea of passion. The fans down there are a different kind, they get involved and they even put their phones down at times."

Pantera's new lineup features core members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown joined by Benante and Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society), playing in place of the late, great Abbott brothers, Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. However, for the last four shows of the year, Pantera were without Brown, who had to tap out after testing positive for COVID. Cattle Decapitation's Derek Engemann — who also notably plays with Anselmo in both the singer's solo band, the Illegals, and his black-metal side project Scour — filled in, with Bobby Landgraf (Honky, ex-Down) occasionally jumping onstage for "Cowboys From Hell."

Pantera have a very busy scheduled lined up for 2023, including dates with Metallica on their M72 World Tour, and appearances at Welcome to Rockville, Inkcarceration and Blue Ridge Rock Festival.
