Vinnie Paul's tribute event, A Public Celebration of Life, is taking place right now at The Bomb Factory in the Deep Ellum area of Dallas, and you can watch a livestream of it below.

It was revealed earlier this week via Pantera's official social outlets that there would be a public gathering held for Paul today (July 1). The line for wristbands began at 12N local time, with no advance tickets being sold, lists collected or early lineups allowed.

Paul died last Friday (June 22) at his residence in Las Vegas, Nev. at the age of 54. In addition to his star-making turn in Pantera and his most recent band Hellyeah, Paul also performed with his brother Dimebag Darrell in the band Damageplan and he also collaborated with outlaw country veteran David Allan Coe in the Rebel Meets Rebel project.
