Counting down to the first ever Orion Music + More festival in Atlantic City, NJ on June 23 and 24. Metallica plans to perform The Black Album in its entirety one night, and Ride The Lightning in its entirety the other, so for your planning purposes RTL will be on Saturday, June 23 with The Black Album up the next night, Sunday, June 24. They've added several new bands and comedians to the line-up; Ghost, The Black Dahlia Murder, Letlive, Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson, Charred Walls of the Damned, and Shuli Egar are all on board.
On the "other cool activities" front, James will be hosting a custom car and motorcycle show, Billabong will be on site with the "All Out Air Assault" surfing exposition, "Ktulu's Rock ‘N' Roll Emporium," a rock and roll market, will be set up, and just added is "Kirk's Crypt," a showcase of Kirk's passion for all things horror – vintage film posters, movie props, collectables and more . . . all hosted by The Ripper himself
