Who: King Parrot, Lamb of God, & PANTERA
What: One of the finest heavy metal concert experiences EVER
When: Tuesday, September 12, 2023
Where: Ameris Bank Amphitheater - Alpharetta, Georgia
Why: For the celebration of The Abbott Brothers history & legacy
On this night, thousands of loyal Atlanta metal fans made the pilgrimage to behold the spectacle of King Parrot, Lamb of God, and PANTERA absolutely blowing everyone’s mind with one of the finest (and certainly one of the HEAVIEST) heavy metal shows to EVER bless the stage at Ameris Amphitheater!
Truly a “family reunion for metal”, it was one of the most powerfully transcendental events of community, reverence, and sheer sonic bliss ever experienced in a single place on a single night. The collective energy of these three extreme metal juggernauts elevated the entire audience to an almost frenzied level of controlled chaos & palpable glee. It was, without question, one of THE best metal shows to come to Atlanta in recent years, bar none. And for a few fleeting hours on that night of “Metal Magic”, it felt just like the old days all over again, in the best way possible.
It’s “story time” in the Bunkerpoon, which means it’s time to “hang tight” and “have some cocktails” with the “three black sheep” and find out “what happens to dudes who can’t handle their White Claws” while trying to comprehend how talking to someone on a cell phone at a concert is as futile and pointless as peeing into a tornado.
Prepare to learn which two letters equal the letter ladies sit on, discover the proper way to pronounce King Parrot, dine on the finest post-show cuisine at the Waffle House and JOIN US as we reflect on one of the most important nights of heavy metal to have blessed Atlanta in recent years as we reflect on the details of the PANTERA LEGACY TOUR POST GAME WRAP-UP featuring King Parrot, Lamb of God, and PANTERA on the Atlanta tour stop to honor and celebrate the legacy of the brothers, Darrell & Vinnie Abbott.
