Robert Trujillo and Kirk Hammett performed a cover of XUTOS & PONTAPÉS's "A Minha Casinha" during METALLICA's February 1 concert in Lisbon, Portugal. Fan-filmed video footage of their rendition can be seen below.
XUTOS & PONTAPÉS has dominated the Portuguese rock music scene since the late 1970s, with the band's fan base spanning several generations.
Trujillo dedicated METALLICA's version of "A Minha Casinha" to XUTOS & PONTAPÉS guitarist Zé Pedro, who died in December at the age of 61.
He reportedly died at home in Lisbon following a long battle with an undisclosed illness.
METALLICA's show in Lisbon kicked off the 2018 European leg of the group's "WorldWired" tour, which will run through May 11 in Helsinki, Finland.
The first European leg of METALLICA's "WorldWired" tour launched in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 2 and ran through November 3.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band is touring in support of its tenth studio album, "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct", which came out in November 2016.
The "WorldWired" trek was Pollstar's fifth-highest grossing tour of 2017, with 1.5 million tickets sold.
