The Press Release:
Dimebash – an all-star jam tribute to “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, the late co-founder and guitarist of Pantera and Damageplan – is set for Thursday, January 16 at The Observatory OC in Santa Ana, California.

Rock legend Dave Grohl and many more top rock and metal artists will be on hand to honor the guitar legend 15 years after his untimely passing. The all-star jam will feature Dime’s music and some of his favorite songs, with the Texas homegrown sounds of WhiskeyDick opening the show. The full lineup of musical guests will be announced in January.

Event producer and Dimebag’s longtime partner Rita Haney said, “This year will mark the 15 year anniversary since Darrell was taken from us…even more of a reason to come together with friends and chosen family to honor the man that brought so much love and laughter to our lives…not to mention some pretty sick tuneage!!! If you’ve never experienced ‘the room’ at Dimebash, it’s something you can’t describe – the love, the unity, the smiles, the magic. It’s a special kind of vibe you have to check out at least once for yourself. Then you’ll almost know what it’s like to have Dime physically in the room.”
