Drumming legend Vinnie Paul passed away this past June, but his band Hellyeah were scheduled to play the Louder Than Life festival (scheduled for September 28th-30th at Louisville’s Champions Park in Kentucky) as well as the Monster Energy Aftershock (scheduled for October 13th and 14th at Sacramento’s Discovery Parkin in California). Now, promoter Danny Wimmer Presents has announced that tributes to Vinnie Paul will take place at both these festivals. Each festival will include an all-star Vinnie Paul Tribute which will see the musicians playing songs from Paul’s legendary band Pantera, as well as his follow-up band, Damageplan. The performance at Louder Than Life will feature members of Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Hellyeah, Sevendust, Gwar, Bullet for My Valentine, Body Count, Kyng, Cane Hill and more. The Aftershock tribute will feature members of Korn, Deftones, Godsmack, Shinedown, Hellyeah, Sevendust, Gwar, Kyng, Emmure and more.
