Metallica to stream Orion Music + More festival this weekend

Metallica have spent the spring on the European festival circuit, and this weekend, it’s their turn to host a festival of their own making.

The metal icons launch Orion Music + More at Bader Field in Atlantic City, New Jersey this weekend.

In addition to more than 30 artists on the bill, Metallica will headline both nights, each with its own cool angle: they’ll play their classic “Ride The Lightning” album in its entirety on Saturday and, for the first time ever in the U.S., perform the “Black” album on Sunday.
Metallica has announced that select performances will be streamed live via Fuse, including the band’s closing set on Sunday evening.

The action starts on Fuse's YouTube page (here) on Saturday at 5:30 PM ET with a set from Lucero. Sets from Gaslight Anthem, Modest Mouse and Metallica (performing Ride the Lightning!) will follow.

Tune in again at 5:30 PM ET on Sunday for performances from Best Coast, Eric Church and, of course, Metallica bringing The Black Album's metal fury.
