Metallica were joined onstage by Iggy Pop on Sunday night at their show in Mexico City.

The band were wrapping up their third and final night at the Foro Sol when Pop took to the stage with James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo to perform the Stooges track T.V. Eye.

Introducing Pop to the crowd, Hetfield says: “So, night three and we’re making it extra special. 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.”

Pop had been serving as Metallica’s support on the three Mexico City dates.

Metallica are now taking a short break from live activities but will kick things back into action at Brazil’s Lollapalooza on March 25, which will be followed by the North American leg of their WorldWired tour. Find a full list of tour dates below.

Earlier this week, Metallica released dress rehearsal footage of their Grammy Awards show performance with Lady Gaga, who Ulrich later described as “the perfect fifth member of Metallica.”
