Deftones With Shaun Lopez

Watch Deftones’ Set Last Night With Shaun Lopez Guesting On Guitar


Last night (May 28th) served as a special treat for Deftones fans who were able to catch the band’s set at La Riviera in Madrid, Spain. The Sacramento, CA-based alternative metal favorites played their first European show of the year yesterday, which found them accompanied by an additional special guest musician.

Joining the group for the set on additional guitars was Shaun Lopez, who also performs with Deftones vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno in their side project, Crosses. Lopez helped fill-in with the outfit in light of lead guitarist Stephen Carpenter currently opting to not partake in international touring.

Lopez, who was also a member of Sacramento, CA post-hardcore outfit Far and more, helped augment the current touring lineup, which in addition to Moreno, drummer Abe Cunningham, and programmer/sampler, etc. Frank Delgado, featured current live members Lance Jackman (guitars) and Fred Sablan (bass).

The setlist for this first show with Lopez ran as follows:

Swerve City
Diamond Eyes
You’ve Seen The Butcher
Digital Bath
Rocket Skates
Change (In The House Of Flies)
Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away)
Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” (The Smiths cover)
My Own Summer (Shove It)

Fan-filmed footage of nearly the entire performance has since been made available online below. Deftones will be back onstage tomorrow, May 30th and have the following shows announced for the year so far:

05/30 Barcelona, SPA – Primavera Sound
08/03 Chicago, IL – Lollaplaooza
