In Rolling Stone’s Special 2012 Summer Extra Edition featuring Metallica, Lars Ulrich speaks a little about the upcoming Orion Music + More Festival. When asked what part of Orion Festival he could take credit for, along with naming a few other bands, this is what he had to say about getting Avenged Sevenfold on the bill:

“Avenged Sevenfold are very near and dear to me. They were on the fence about it. They were taking the summer off. I called one of the guys and said ‘It would really mean a lot to me.'” – Lars Ulrich

Thanks Ashley for sending this in.

I love that Lars and Metallica really took Avenged under their wing :) Very sweet!

I SO want to make a road trip to this. Not only to see A7X, but to see Metallica and now seeing that Volbeat was added to the lineup, that’s sweet. I’m sure it would be an awesome time.

I didn’t know volbeat was now on the bill. Beside sevenfold volbeat has to be the next best show I have been to. How they are now just getting credit is insane.
