Metallica have played plenty of festivals over the years, and even curated their own event with the Orion Music + More festival earlier this year. But even though it should be old hat for them at this point, the veteran rockers still get a buzz out of seeing so much talent in one place.
More video footage has been posted online from Metallica‘s eight-night stand at the Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City. A new clip posted by Metallica TV shows Metallica casually rehearsing in their tuning room before going out to perform a savage ‘Ride the Lightning’ to the delirious stadium crowd on July 28.
This year the Songwriters Hall Of Fame inducted legendary recording artist Bob Seger on June 14 during their 43rd annual ceremony and awards presentation. The multi-platinum songwriter was humble in accepting, and performed an inspiring version of his 1973 hit ‘Turn The Page’, perhaps his most known tune.
In advance of this weekend’s Orion Music + More Festival, Metallica held a press conference to discuss the two-day event, which will take place at Bader Field in Atlantic City, N.J. Metallica will headline both nights and play ‘Ride the Lightning’ in its entirety tonight (June 23) and the ‘Black Album’ tomorrow.
The great thing about having your own festival is that you get to run it however you like. Metallica really took that to heart adding their own personal attractions for the “more” part of the Orion Music + More festival.
James Hetfield recently delighted Metallica fans when he announced that the band had over 800 riffs at their disposal for their new disc, and that was just his personal contributions. In a new interview with Guitar World, guitarist Kirk Hammett weighs in on that massive collection of riffs, and provides a little quality control.
Say what you will about Lars Ulrich, he gives one hell of an interview. In a new sit-down with Maxim, Metallica‘s outspoken drummer dishes on porn stars, Hulk Hogan, Napster, and what he really thinks about the metal community.
