According to Metal Hammer members of Pantera, Slayer, Alice In Chains, Machine Head and many more will perform at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood, California this month, in memory of the former Pantera guitarist. Dimebag was tragically shot dead at a Damageplan concert in 2004. The tribute concert in honour of ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott will raise money for the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.
Abbott’s long-term girlfriend, Rita Haney, says: “I think the thing that embodies this event and entity is unity – bringing everyone together to celebrate the music played and loved by Darrell and to benefit the foundation of a very beloved man, Mr Ronnie James Dio.”
“Dimebag Darrell was notorious for giving us all so much, in some way, even to this day. So to be able to give back in his name is such an honour. With all of this amazing talent in one place it makes for a damn good celebration, so come on out.”
