The reviews of this past weekend's Orion Music + More festival have been nothing short of amazing. The two-day concert on Belle Isle outside Detroit featured Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silversun Pickups, Deftones, Dropkick Murphys, and a dozen other bands including, of course, festival founders Metallica.
Other than the Peppers two-hour set to end the day, Saturday's highlight was a band called Dehaan. Dehaan had an early afternoon slot on the Damage Inc side stage. James Hetfield came on stage first to ask the crowd, "Does anyone know who they [Dehaan] are? They're from Baltimore. Nobody knows anything about them but us." Hetfield was then joined on stage by the rest of his bandmates from Metallica who then launched into "Hit The Lights" ... performing 1983's Kill 'Em All in its entireity for a 30th Anniversary set. Fans soon realized what was actually happening and rushed the side stage.
Metallica ended the festival Sunday night with a two hour set that included "For Whom The Bell Tolls," "Master Of Puppets," "The Day That Never Comes," "Carpe Diem Baby," and the encore Bob Seger classic "Turn The Page." "One" ended the show, accompanied by lasers and fireworks.
