Metalachi Kicks Off Summer Concert Series at Amphitheater This Saturday

Alt/Latin artists Metalachi will perform their unique blend of metal rock and mariachi music at the Palmdale Amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 14 as part of the City of Palmdale’s summer concert series. 

Tickets are available at General admission tickets are $15 each. Children 12 and younger are admitted free with a paid adult, tickets not required.  Parking is free. A beautiful Palmdale Amphitheater sun shade will be given to the first 100 adults to come through the entrance gates.

Billed as the “World’s First and Only Heavy Metal Mariachi Band,” Metalachi performs mariachi versions of classic metal songs such as “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne, “Sweet Child of Mine” from Guns ‘N’ Roses, “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi, “Man In A Box” from Alice In Chains, “The Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin, “Cemetery Gates” from Pantera, and many more.

While they play their sets using traditional mariachi instruments, their stage show and presence is more along the lines of KISS and Rob Zombie, as they blend music and humor with outlandish costumes and stage personalities.

Metalachi has earned the admiration and praise of a loyal and diverse fan base as well as noted musicians such as Pantera’s Vinnie PaulSublime’s Eric Wilson, Slayer’s Dave Lombardo, Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows, and Billy Idol. They have also been featured on America’s Got Talent, CNN’s Great Big Story, National Geographic and Rolling Stone en Español.

“For those who have never seen Metalachi, you’re in for a real treat,” said Palmdale’s Director of Parks and Recreation Keri Smith. “The concert is a part mariachi, part metal, part comedy and a ton of fun!” 

Gates open at 6 p.m. and guests are encouraged to arrive early as grass festival style seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Early arrival is also recommended to take advantage of convenient parking and the delicious onsite concessions, including beer and wine.  Performance begins at 8 pm.  Tickets available at, and onsite day of the event at 5 p.m. unless sold out in advance.
