Metallica Won’t Play Full Albums at ‘Orion’

Metallica
Chuck Armstrong, Ultimate Classic Rock

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has told Revolver in a new interview that the band probably won’t be playing any of its albums in their entirety at this June’s second annual Orion Music + More festival. Last year the band performed 1991′s “black album” one night and 1984′s Ride The Lightning the other. Asked about doing the same this time around, Ulrich said, “If I was a betting man, which I’m not, I would probably not put too much money on that. I think you’ve got to be careful that it doesn’t become something that people expect from you every year, especially when you only put records out every five years like we do. We’ll run out of records to play at some point pretty quick.”

Ulrich added that the band won’t rule out playing an entire album again, saying, “I think it’s something that we’ll keep doing throughout Metallica’s next decade or so, but I don’t know if we’re going to do it at this year’s Orion festival. Obviously there’s an anniversary there. People say, ‘Oh, it’s the 30th anniversary of (1983 debut) Kill ‘Em All.’ But we haven’t made a firm decision on that. I don’t want to become predictable.”
