METALLICA was joined by Iggy Pop on stage Sunday night (March 5) in Mexico City for a performance of THE STOOGES song “T.V. Eye”.
Pop was the opening act for METALLICA at each of the three shows METALLICA played at the Foro Sol venue, where the two acts were seen by a total of nearly two hundred thousand fans.
METALLICA welcomed Pop on stage for the final encore, with frontman James Hetfield telling the crowd: “METALLICA has much respect for the man coming out here to sing a song with us, and we’re grateful that he’s been able to be on this Mexico City tour with us. Please show your sign of respect and love to Mr. Iggy Pop.”
THE STOOGES singer came onstage for a blistering rendition of the “Fun House” classic, with Pop and Hetfield screaming together on the “Right on!” portion of the bridge before sharing some call-and-response vocals on the third verse.
Now HERE is some raw power! With the legendary Iggy Pop, backstage at Foro Sol, Mexico City!
