Metallica To Throw The Orion Music And More Festival In Atlantic City This Summer
Metallica has announced the first annual Orion Music & More Festival, which will take place in Atlantic City on June 23 and 24 and feature the band headlining both nights and playing the Black Albumyou know, Bob Rock, commercial breakthrough, "Enter Sandman," etc.in its entirety on U.S. soil for the first time. The lineup is more Lollapalooza than Big 4, with Titus Andronicus, Best Coast, Hot Snakes (yes!), and Arctic Monkeys on the bill; sadly, Lou Reed is not on the initial lineup, but we can always hope. Tickets are $125 for a two-day pass and $225 for its VIP iteration, which includes a better space in the general-admission crowd and access to an "exclusive lounge." (Ooh, exclusive!) Full lineup so far below.

All I'm going to say is: No Long Fin Killie and/or Melvins, no credibility.
