Robert Trujillo is going live…
The 55-year-old half-Mexican American bassist and his Metallica band mates are set to play their first live show in nearly a year on Sunday, August 29, when they become the first rock band to be featured in the Encore Drive-In Nights series.
Hitting the stage for the first time since their September 2019 S&M2 concerts at the Chase Center in San Francisco, Trujillo and the gang will play a full set that’ll be beamed into hundreds of drive-in and outdoor theaters across the U.S. and Canada, according to a release announcing the gig.
The show – featuring opening act Three Days Grace – will be shot for the series at an undisclosed location near the group’s Northern California headquarters and edited and mixed by Metallica’s production team, with a promise of a career-spanning set.
The concert is part of Encore Live‘s series of gigs at drive-in theaters and it will adhere to CDC guidelines, including staff in PPE enforcing a six-foot distance between cars, as well as employment of contactless payment and ticketing and limited restroom capacity.
Each ticket ($115) purchased will admit a carload of fans – up to six people per vehicle – with tickets going on sale on Friday, August 14 at noon local venue time.
