    Metallica had said that they were tabling the 2012-launched Orion Music + More Festival, which played Atlantic City, N.J. its first year and Detroit, Michigan in its second in 2013, for the year 2014.

    They said they were instead choosing to tour Europe instead of putting on the festival, which boasted eclectic lineups and cool ancillary things like horror exhibits and James Hetfield's hotrods. Sadly, the event is not coming back, since it was such a financial flop for the band.

    The "financial disaster," as Hetfield termed it, means Orion had two runs and that's it. We'll miss it. R.I.P., Orion.

    Have you seen Metallica live? If so, how were they?
