Metallica won’t hold their annual music festival, Orion Music + More, next year
Remember how Metallica made the big decision to hold their Orion Music + More Festival in Detroit last summer? Well, the festival won’t return to the Motor City in 2014—in fact, the event won’t happen anywhere next year.
According to an interview with a spokesperson for C3, the festival’s promoter, in The Detroit News, Metalica’s Orion Music + More Festival will take next year off, since the band will be so busy with their 2014 European summer tour. The spokesperson also stated that Orion + Music More will likely be back in 2015, but it’s still up in the air whether the show will happen in Detroit.
The 2013 Orion Music + More festival, which happened June 8-9 on Detroit’s Belle Isle Park, offered headlining performances by Red Hot Chili Peppers on night one and Metallica on night two, as well as sets by Deftones, Rise Against, Silversun Pickups, Foals, Battlecross, Bassnectar, Dropkick Murphys, Foals and more. The guys of Metallica also surprised fans at the festival by playing their full 1983 debut studio album, “Kill ‘Em All,” as the band “Dehaan” on day one.
