Some will be made available on CD, vinyl and digital formats, while select performances will be available on DVD.

It looks like Phil Anselmo (Pantera, Down, etc.) is set to undergo back surgery once again on January 31. He confirmed the news to Jack Antonio in the below interview:
Anselmo said the following:
“I’m going under the knife next Wednesday. I’m having a follow-up surgery that’s gonna nip something that has been nagging me for the last fucking decade in the bud, and damn it, once this last little kink is ironed out, I’ll feel a whole lot better, man. Which means a better me, [and] that means more work, more gigs, more ability to do gigs, and shit like that. So that’s always wonderful.”
He also added:
“I think the only pain I have left is this one little nagging thing. I think once they zap that, shit… I guess I’ll be closest to feeling as close to normal for the first time in decades.
I’ve talked to everybody close to me and tried to explain to them that I’m gonna have to re-learn how to live life, man, on many, many different levels. It’s interesting. But it’s good. I look at it as a positive, because after a decade of the nagging thing, I’d hit a wall, and when I hit a wall, I get pissed off and I tend to hit back, and my way of hitting back is resenting my condition. Therefore I’m doing everything in my power to overcome, and I’m gonna do it, man, again. Watch.”
The operation will be done by the same surgeon that performed surgery on Anselmo in 2006.

Phil Anselmo has posted a teaser for Pantera’s upcoming fourth home video release. You can check that out below. This news follows the announcement of “Dimevision Vol. 2: Roll With It Or Get Rolled Over” (out November 24).
Pantera’s Rex Brown was recently interviewed by Loudwire, and was asked about how close Pantera have come to reuniting. He simply responded by saying “close”.
Brown further added:
“Well, I just speak for myself. I mean, I’d love to get out there and play those songs again. And if everybody else was willing to do it… You know, I think the whole thing would be get us all in a room, throw some water on it and get that water underneath the bridge all settled and make some music again. But it would be different. We’d be missing something. And that’s the big ugh. I’m just being as honest as I can. It would be different.”
“I’d do anything to have that back—family and all that kind of stuff. I never say ‘never’ on that kind of thing, and I’m tired of saying, you know, ‘hell freezes over,’ or whatever, but at the same time, life is getting too short and you never know… But I’m not saying there’s been any talks at all.
Would I do it? Phillip, I just saw Phil not long ago. We’re all doing our own things… I’d get up there and do it for fucking nothing.”
Fans have been wanting a reunion for a long time, but with Dimebag’s tragic death and the conflict between Phil Anselmo and Vinnie Paul it is hard to imagine it will ever happen. However, if it does happen, Zakk Wylde is expected to fill in on guitar.
