Dimebag Darrell Guitar Tech Signs On to Reunion Tour and Addresses Critics

Dimebag Darrell’s longtime guitar tech Grady Champion recently announced that he has signed on for Pantera’s upcoming reunion tour. The tour will feature original members Phil Anselmo and Rex Brown along with Zakk Wylde on guitar and Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante behind the kit.

The Pantera reunion will play it’s first shows in December 2022 with a co-headlining slot at Mexico’s Hell & Heaven Metal Fest, followed by appearances at three Knotfest festivals in South America.

Champion addressed criticism of the reunion in a recent Instagram post saying:

“Anyone that brings up ‘money grab’ has no concept of reality. How much it takes from people to do this. More dedication that you’ll ever see, tears, all of it. If you want to hate, don’t go, I don’t want to hear it. If you want a PANTERA experience, this is it. We’re giving it hell, and going to give it all there is to give. Philip, Rex Brown, Zakk and Char Benante are going to bring it.”

“Stronger than all”.
