June 18: Night number two from Orion is now availabe for download! The set kicked off with "Blackened" and included several rarely played songs . . . "I Disappear," "The Day That Never Comes" (not heard since the Death Magnetic tourinig days!) and a real gem with "Carpe Diem Baby." Of course the band included the festival namesake, "Orion," and all the usuals like "Creeping Death" and "Master Of Puppets."
Also check out the set from that up and coming band dehaan, um, Metallica from the first day of Orion! In a full on suprise move, the guys hit the Damage Inc stage on Saturday, June 8th and roared through the entire Kill 'Em All album celebrating 30 years since its release and a true Metallica first.
To all of you who joined us at Belle Isle in Detroit for the weekend, a huge thank you! Hope to see you again next year. Look for us back here in July from the Roskilde Festival in Denmark.
Head over to the Vault for a free download of James and Kirk's performance of the National Anthem at AT&T Park before the May 3rd San Francisco Giants game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. It's the first time members of Metallica have ever performed the Anthem live!
