METALLICA's ROBERT TRUJILLO, KIRK HAMMETT Cover PINK FLOYD's 'Run Like Hell' In Kansas City (Video)
March 7, 2019
Robert Trujillo and Kirk Hammett celebrated David Gilmour's birthday by playing a cover version of PINK FLOYD's "Run Like Hell" during METALLICA's March 6 concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Professionally filmed video footage of their performance can be seen below.
"Run Like Hell" was part of the fun and unusual feature METALLICA added to its shows on the band's recent tours: at each stop, Hammett and Trujillo have been covering songs from some of their musical heroes — often choosing songs that are far removed from the band's traditional metal sound. The "doodles," as the band refers to them in their setlists, have been showing up right before Trujillo's solo on "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth". The songs are pared-down interpretations — just bass and guitar and sometimes Trujillo singing in front of music stands.
METALLICA kicked off the 2018/2019 U.S. leg of the "WorldWired" arena tour in September at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin.
The band is continuing to tour in support of its latest album, "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 album chart, selling 291,000 copies in its first week of release.
