TRUJILLO TRIO, the band consisting of METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, American skateboarder Tony Trujillo (who is apparently unreleated to Robert) and Tony‘s wife, Ashley “Trixie” Trujillo, played a short set at the Vans “Off The Wall” tent during METALLICA‘s two-day festival Orion Music + Morewhich took place on June 23-24 at the popular Atlantic City, New Jersey concert venue Bader Feld. You can now watch fan-filmed video footage of the performance below.
Orion Music + More featured multiple live music stages plus a lifestyle element that reflects each of METALLICA‘s bandmembers’ many personal interests.
When asked why METALLICA would want to do their own festival, guitarist/vocalist James Hetfield said in a recent interview, “First of all, because we can. Why wouldn’t you? We’re just trying to bring a little more of a mix to what is going on. . . . I think the Europeans are able to look at a festival more as an event than ‘my favorite band is playing.’ We’re not necessarily trying to reproduce that in the States, but we’d like to bring a little taste of that here.”
