In the clip below, members of METALLICA give FOO FIGHTERS drummer Taylor Hawkins a personal tour of their passions at the second annual Orion Music + More festival.
METALLICA‘s sophomore Orion Music + More took place this past weekend’s (June 8-9) in Detroit, Michigan.
As previously reported, METALLICA played a surprise set on Saturday afternoon under the name DEHAAN, playing their entire 1983 debut disc “Kill ‘Em All” from front to back.
The band’s headlining set on Sunday night, which closed out the festival, featured rarities like “Carpe Diem, Baby”, “I Disappear” and “Disposable Heroes” alongside the band’s more traditional hits and live favorites.
The members of METALLICA were also spotted hanging out at their personal lifestyle exhibits, with James Hetfield seen at his custom car display, Trujillo overseeing the skateboarding at the Vans Vert Ramp, and drummer Lars Ulrich premiering a clip from the upcoming movie “Metallica Through The Never” alongside director Nimród Antal.
The Metallica Museum displayed the bass that Cliff Burton played at his final concert before his 1986 death in a Swedish bus crash, as well as other instruments, stage props and vintage concert flyers.
Robert Trujillo played two other sets during the course of the weekend, first with a reunion of funk-rockers INFECTIOUS GROOVES and then with his own TRUJILLO TRIO.
Spokesperson Charlie Walker of promoter C3 Presents said that around 20,000 attended the first day, with possibly more showing up on Sunday. As for whether Orion will return to Detroit next year, he replied, “We’ll go through this one, wrap it up, see what the feedback is . . . Then we’ll sit down and try to get a grip on what to do next.”
