Albuquerque Metalhead Mayor Introduces TRIVIUM On Stage At A Show

Tim Keller – mayor, big ol' metal fan.

Tim Keller – mayor, big ol' metal fan.

Trivium played the Sunshine Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico on December 2 and got an introduction from a fairly unlikely source – newly elected Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller. Keller got up on stage, professed his love of heavy metal, and then proceeded to introduce Trivium to the crowd. Here's exactly what his introduction was.

"Not only am I your new mayor, I love heavy metal. I've been with you since I was born at Tingley Coliseum right here, and I've waited all my life to say thank you and to say Albuquerque is an awesome metal city.

And so tonight we have a special treat in store, as you know. One of my favorite bands, a band that I listened to on the campaign trail. When times were tough, they picked us up. Scream for me, Albuquerque, for Trivium."

Keller later told the New Mexico Political Report that he saw Mastodon "like three days ago at the El Rey [Theater]," that his favorite metal show thus far was seeing Machine Head at the Sunshine Theater in 2016, and one time he bought cheap Megadeth tickets and snuck into the general admission section at the Tingley Coliseum.

Tim Keller, you're a badass.
