Watch Korn Play First Concert With Metallica Bassist's 12-Year-Old Son Tye Trujillo


Last week you heard Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo's 12-year-old son Tye would fill in for Korn's Fieldy for seven South American dates. The short tour kicked off in Bogota, Colombia last night, and faithful fans captured video and a complete setlist. Watch below as the band kick off their show with "Right Now" and "Here to Stay," followed by a rendition of the Life Is Peachy crusher "Good God":

Tye Trujillo also fronts the band The Helmets. Fieldy's absence for these gigs was chalked up to "unforeseen circumstances." The band said they're "bummed Fieldy can’t join us on this run but excited to do a few gigs with a young player like Tye." The 47-year-old born Reginald Arvizu co-founded Korn in 1993. 

Previously Rob Trujillo, who has been Metallica's bassist since 2003, told the Huffington Post, "My son is an amazing bass player and a really great writer. The bass lines that he's writing and the riffs, I'm like, 'Man, I wish I had written that.'" The kid's influences, according to pops, include Black SabbathToolJames BrownLed Zeppelin, Jaco Pastorus and Queens of the Stone Age.

Check out a couple more Tye-centric moments from Korn's Bogota concert below, and read the setlist here; they did all three of the classic singles from 1999's Issues.
