Down Have Announced Their First Live Show Since 2016

Philip H. Anselmo’s Down have announced a 2020 live performance.

With Philip H. Anselmo returning to the European festival circuit next summer playing his A Vulgar Display Of Pantera set at August’s Bloodstock, the frontman’s sludge metal supergroup Down have also just announced a show.

The band have been added to Graspop Metal Meeting 2020’s huge line-up, with the scheduled performance date of June 20 marking their first show since August 2016’s Psycho Las Vegas. And it looks as though they might potentially be marking the 25th anniversary of their 1995 debut album NOLA at the fest, as per the biography on Graspop’s website.
