Metallica have scrapped their Orion Music + More festival in 2014 so they can concentrate on shows in Europe. Frontman James Hetfield recently told Billboard.com that the annual event had become "an expensive barbecue" adding that plans for 2014 were not set. And now the group and their partners have announced the festival will take a break next year. The first Orion event took place in New Jersey in 2012 and this year (Jun13) Detroit, Michigan was the host city for the two-day festival, which also featured performances by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones, Rise Against and Dropkick Murphys.
