The North American Pantera will open the first edition of the Evil Live Festival, in Lisbon, while Slipknot will close the hostilities, in an Altice Arena that will be almost full to receive two great names of the world “heavy metal”.

The largest concert hall in the Portuguese capital, with a capacity for 20,000 spectators, will be almost sold out on both days, according to information revealed to Lusa by Prime Artists, the event promoter.

Pantera, now formed by Phil Anselmo (vocals), Rex Brown (bass), Zakk Wylde (guitar) and Charlie Benante (drums), with the last two replacing the late brothers ‘Dimebag’ Darrell and Vinnie Paul, present themselves to the Portuguese public after 21 years without playing live, in a tour that began in December in Mexico.

The band from Texas will take the stage at 11:15 PM, after Mammoth WVH, Vended, whose lead singer is Corey Taylor’s son, Slipknot, Elegant Weapons, Soufly, and Alter Bridge play for the Portuguese fans.

The following day, at the same time, Slipknot, also a North American group, will take the stage at the Altice Arena, returning to Lisbon after their 2019 concert at the VOA – Heavy Rock Festival, which was scheduled for the Restelo Stadium, but ended up being held there due to a security breach detected in the structure of the stage set up in Belém.

Prior to the Des Moines masqueraders’ performance, Voynich Code will open the hostilities, followed by Blind Channel, Fever 333, Meshuggah, and Papa Roach.

Tickets for the first edition of the festival cost 70 euros for one day and 120 euros for two days.
