Are You Interested in a Metallica Festival?

Metallica has announced that they are hosting their second annual Orion Music + More festival in Detroit this summer. The line-up hasn't been released yet, but if metal music isn't your thing you might still enjoy it -- last year they headlined both nights but booked diverse bands like Best Coast, Modest Mouse and the Arctic Monkeys.

Fans of the metal band are looking forward to the event and hoping that they continue the tradition of playing through entire albums. In 2012, they performed "Ride the Lightning" in its entirety the first night, and "Metallica" (aka "The Black Album") the next.

What do you think of the Music + More festival? If it does well again this year, they might continue and it could become a festival staple. Would you be interested in going? I just hope they don't play all the way through "St. Anger"...

NME.COM reports:
The second annual Orion Music + More event will take place in Detroit in June of next year.

    I do not like this band anymore. The more youthful they were the better. They're an example of a band whose fame and money has made them complete douchebags. I'd much rather see a less known act on the same day and support them because money is a problem for them. Metallica will never go poor. People will always go to their concerts no matter how bad they sound live.

    Plus you can't shill off records that you were too lazy to make for years and call it amazing. I feel that way about Tool (on 10,000 days, I don't like that album), except I don't think they're douchebags, let alone pretentious people. I refuse to give Metallica credit as amazing musicians just because they inspired a lot of musicians I listen to now that I still like. If you grow into like music, you can also grow out. And I dislike Metallica more and more and time goes by. If you're a fan - cool. I don't care.

    The lineup seems cool though I am over attending live gigs, not for the live music experience, I just have panic attacks around that many people in the crowd.

    I am reduced to seeing start up bands that basically nobody has heard of yet. They play to the other bands on the gig lineup, probably a scene that many bands that make it bid miss at least a little.

    Mature and drug free. All of a sudden they can perform their immature and drug induced songs 100% better.

    Not a big fan of this group anymore. Their egos went through the roof and their music went down the drain. I saw their last show in Seattle and it stands out as the worst live performance I have ever seen. I guess we all have our own opinions though...
  • CherryPOP 2012/12/21 22:39:24
    Yes! How about throw a festival for your aussie fans :)

    Of the 1980's hard-rock/metal groups, Mettallica was never high on my list of those I listened to.

    There wasn't nearly the amount of metal at last year's festival as there should've been.

    It's a great idea and it's going to be a fun show. I'd love to go to this festival, cause face it, Metallica are fun to see live and they haven't lost a step. I don't see why everyone is hating on this. Their last album Death Magnetic was fantastic and their future is looking bright.

    Are you guys still angry about Lars taking a stance on music downloading? Cause Lars was correct in taking his stance. Look at what downloading and music piracy have done to the industry. Sales have plummeted. Records & CDs remain on shelves. Bands aren't making the money they used to.The glory days of stadium rock, glam metal, thrash metal, grunge, nu metal,& pop punk are gone cause of this, and likely never to return cause fans are more interested in saving themselves and each other some quick bucks. Why support good music when you can download?

    And whats the problem with St.Anger? Who cares if it doesn't have any solos from Kirk Hammett? That album is heavy.

    haters gonna hate mlp

    I mean, if we could first invent a time machine, that would take these sell-out, corporate-whoring, anti-online piracy legislation-shilling, merchandise-proliferating and non-new-good-music-proliferating douchebags back to 1983...

    Or... 1982.
    I would have killed to see Metallica with Dave.
    But no. I had to be born in '93. >:(

    I absolutely love Metallica and just knowing that there might be more bands is awesome. I might take my boyfriend as a surprise to him because that's one of his favorite bands
  • Luxxie 2012/12/21 14:54:05

    Pretty much the best band I've seen in concert. I would go in a heartbeat.

    And your grounds for saying that are...what? You don't know who I've seen so if this is just your personal opinion, you can kindly shove it. I notice you call them "has-beens." Do you even know what that means? If you have a 30 year career, you are no longer a has-been.

    Dude, you have no clue what you're saying. At all. It's painfully obvious you don't even know what the words you're using mean. Get a dictionary, then Shoo!
