VIDEO: Metallica bassist performs Metallica medley with Rodrigo y Gabriela

Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo joined Rodrigo y Gabriela for the encore of their August 17th show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, and the duo are sharing pro-shot video of the performance.

The trio played a tribute to Metallica that featured a medley of "Orion", "For Whom The Bell Tolls", "The Frayed Ends Of Sanity" and "Battery."

The Mexican guitar duo of Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero perform a mix of several genres, mostly rooted in latin rhythms. The pair originally teamed up in a Mexico City heavy metal band called Tierra Acida ("Acid Land") in the early 1990s before moving on to develop their own music and style.

The duo have performed Metallica tunes through the years and have featured some of the performances on their live releases.

Trujillo and Metallica wrapped up their 2014 “By Request” tour recently at Heavy Montreal; the group’s only North American show of the year came on the heels of an extensive, 2-month tour across Europe.
