PANTERA POSTPONES HEADLINE TOUR UNTIL 2001 ­ FOR 
THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR 14 YEAR CAREER:


Platinum recording artists Pantera have been forced to postpone 
the first leg of their headline arena tour due to lead singer Philip 
Anselmo breaking two ribs. 


Scheduled to begin on November 7, the tour dates will be 
rescheduled starting February 2001 subject to venue availability.


“We all just spoke with Philip, he feels terrible and it’s just 
humanly impossible to sing with two broken ribs,” stated 
Pantera drummer and spokesperson Vinnie Paul. “All 4 of us 
just want him to heal quick so we can get the hell on the road. 
We know that all of our fans were eagerly awaiting the tour and 
will be very disappointed, as are all four of us. It was an accident 
and it couldn’t be helped. We have every intention of hitting all the 
cities that we were going to play on this tour. We look forward to 
seeing you in the new year.”


Since their inception, Pantera has garnered dozens of gold and 
platinum albums worldwide, one platinum home video, two gold 
home videos and three Grammy nominations all accomplished 
with virtually no radio support or video exposure. After relentless 
touring following their breakthrough albums Cowboys From Hell, 
Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven, Pantera was 
invited to tour with their idols, Black Sabbath as part of the very 
first Ozzfest tour and follow-up Black Sabbath Reunion Tour. 
Pantera recently completed this summer’s Ozzfest tour, sharing 
the bill with Ozzy. 


Pantera is Philip Anselmo on lead vocals, Dimebag Darrell on 
guitar, Vinnie Paul on drums and Rex Brown on bass. 


Additional information concerning new and re-scheduled tour 
dates, ticket information and more on Pantera will be 
forthcoming.


-Now i know a million of you are gonna come back to me asking 
"what really happened?"  Well I'll tell you...HE FELL!  That's it!  He 
slipped, fell and broke 2 ribs.  He is human ya know.  For those 
of you whining like "I thought he was tough!"  Let''s see one of 
you try to scream bloody murder through "Hellbound" with 2 
broken ribs.  You'll be on the floor before you get out the "H." 


 Why does their have to be drama involved with this?  Nobody 
questioned Mike D. of the Beastie Boys when he got hurt falling 
off his bike and they cancelled their tour.  So why does there 
have to be a story with Pantera.  I'll tell ya the story...He fell.  He's 
hurt.  They'll reschedule the tour.  Case closed.  


Sorry, I don't mean to sound like a jerk through this, but we're 
tired of the stupid questions surrounding this.  I'll have better 
news next time.
