Metallica Announces Next Year's Orion Festival.... IN DETROIT!!!!!!!


It's been four years since I've seen Metallica crush it live, and I've been chomping at the bit to see them again. For every St. Anger or Gigi these guys record, there's a ton of live material to help nearly erase the sting of those releases. And now we're getting them, and then some.

The Orion Festival was Metallica's answer to every other band having their own fest. A mix of contemporary rock acts and all-out metal, Orion had it's first year in New Jersey last year. There was doubt that the two-day show was even profitable, but I guess the millionaires in 'Tallica thought they made enough scratch to throw another. Good move putting it in Detroit, as we'll spend tons of dough on the guys, me included.

The show will be held on June 8th-9th, right before I have to fly out to E3. Hmmm, rough week.
