Vinnie Paul All-Star Tributes Revealed For U.S. Festivals
Louisville’s Louder Than Life and Sacramento’s Monster Energy Aftershock have announced details of a tribute to the late Vinnie Paul.
The musician was sadly set to perform at the two festivals in the coming weeks with Hellyeah. Instead, to celebrate the life of the Pantera/Damageplan founding member, a supergroup will assemble to perform a special Vinnie Paul tribute.
SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin, who has curated the whole thing, says: “I knew the best way to pay tribute to him would be to throw a Texas-sized jam session belting out Pan-mutha-fukkin-tera songs loud and proud! Everyone involved is doing this because they love Vinnie, and together we can all carry on his name, music and spirit forever!”
Each Vinnie Paul Tribute will feature members of bands including Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, Godsmack, Deftones, Hellyeah, Shinedown, Sevendust, GWAR, Bullet For My Valentine, Body Count, KYNG, Cane Hill, Emmure and more – performing songs from both Pantera and Damageplan.
