Iggy Pop wrapped a trio of Metallica concert appearances in Mexico City last night, performing an encore of “TV Eye” by The Stooges, the Detroit band Pop co-formed in 1967. Iggy received a glowing introduction from Metallica frontman James Hetfield.

“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,” Hetfield told the audience. “Please show your sign of respect and love for Mr. Iggy Pop.”
