Metallica Joins 2012 Voodoo Experience Lineup, Replacing Green Day
Heavy metal legends Metallica have taken Green Day’s spot as headliners of this year’s Voodoo Experience. Having seen them recently rock Golden Gate Park quite possibly harder than it has ever been rocked before at this year’s Outside Lands Music Festival, suffice it say, this is an excellent choice for the festival and one that should help move tickets from some folks that would’ve likely otherwise been on the fence. Huge pull to get Metallica playing in City Park. For those of you too young or not lucky enough to have experienced a Metallica concert, there are few bands out there today wielding this kind of voltage. Get there early and prepare for a bruiser of a show in the Big Easy.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges now lives amongst THE CALIFORNIANS as a newcomer to West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites. Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
