Lars Ulrich Checks In From 'Orion Music + More' Festival (Video) - June 24, 2012
METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich has recorded a three-minute video message from the second day of the the band's two-day festival Orion Music + More, which kicked off last night (Saturday, June 23) at the popular Atlantic City, New Jersey concert venue Bader Feld. Check it out below. Also available is an interview CBS Local conducted with METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich at the event.
Orion Music + More features multiple live music stages plus a lifestyle element that reflects each of METALLICA's bandmembers' many personal interests. METALLICA is headlining both nights of Orion Music + More and played "Ride The Lightning" in its entirety the first day and "The Black Album" in its entirety one night the second. This will be the only time the band will perform these albums in North America in 2012.
Ulrich told The Pulse Of Radio that he's curious to see how the festival goes over. "I feel that this will work," he said. "I know I'm gonna have a great time. [laughs] Whether anybody else thinks it's gonna work, you know, we'll find out. And if it does work, obviously we would love to bring it back to the southern Jersey Shore every year. I think it has a shot at working, and if it does, then we would love to just keep making it cooler and cooler every year."
On the topic of the diversity the Orion Music + More bill, Ulrich told RollingStone.com, "I always think that our fans are as open-minded as I am, as METALLICA is, and sometimes in the past we've been proven wrong. And that's OK, I'm not going to sit and tell people what they should or shouldn't embrace. I don't walk around and think they're all METALLICA fans, I think they're all festival fans, music fans, people out for the experience. I hope our fans are going to be open and supportive of everybody that's here, and if they're not, I'm going to find them and kick their ass."
