Metallica's two-day festival Orion Music + More kicked off Saturday night, June 23 at the popular Atlantic City, New Jersey concert venue Bader Feld, reports Blabbermouth.net.
The band headlined both nights of Orion Music + More and played "Ride The Lightning" in its entirety one night and "The Black Album" in its entirety the other. This is the only time the band performed their classic sophomore album, "Ride The Lightning," in its entirety in North America.
In an interview with CBS Local, Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett said, "I know 'Ride The Lightning' forwards and backwards. It's not like 'The Black Album,' where there are three or four songs that we rarely play. Over the course of the years, we've played most of 'Ride The Lightning', except for one song we've never done, 'Escape'. It was pretty easy [to re-learn those songs]. We put way more time into learning 'The Black Album' than 'Ride The Lightning'."
