Metallica Stages Its Own Festival

Metallica seems intent on filling the void left by the demise of OzzFest.  The benchmark mainstream metal band has announced plans for Orion Music + More, a two day event in Atlantic City, NJ that the group promises will include 'lifestyle' elements along with plenty of high decibel music.  Metallica fans will be treated to the group's only full album performances this year of two albums - Ride The Lightning and Black at the festival.  Lars Ulrich says the idea of the band organizing and staging its own festival has been under consideration for years and that 2012 the .'ducks lined up in a row' for making it happen.  The event will also include Avenged Sevenfold, Gaslight Anthem, Guy Clark Jr., and several other acts.
