The lineup has been given a green light by the estates of the band’s founders, drummer Vincent “Vinnie Paul” Abbott and guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott.
The tour has been branded as ‘For The Brothers, For The Fans, Legacy Tour‘. The reformed band will play its first shows in over 20 years in December 2022, starting with a co-headlining slot at Mexico’s Hell & Heaven Metal Fest, and Monterrey Metal Fest, followed by appearances at three Knotfest festivals in South America, Graspop in Belgium, with more dates in Europe expected.
There will also be a one-off show with Judas Priest in São Paulo, Brazil, and a headlining concert in Santiago.
