Metallica To Do Voodoo

03:01 PM Friday 10/12/12 |   |

The Voodoo Music & Arts Experience gives us a rock ’n’ roll version of the old adage about making lemonade out of life’s lemons. Having lost headliner Green Day earlier this week, the festival has announced the band’s replacement – Metallica.

  • Metallica

    “Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival,” Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.

Green Day’s appearance at Voodoo turned into a question earlier this month when, during the band’s set at the iHeart Music Festival in Las Vegas, Billie Joe Armstrong began yelling about their time on stage being cut short. That is, before he smashed his guitar and stomped off stage. The band issued a statement apologizing for Armstrong’s behavior and said Clear Channel did not cut their stage time.

One day later, a Green Day representative said Armstrong was to receive treatment for substance abuse. The band’s bowing out of Voodoo was announced Oct. 9.

Now Voodoo is making lemonade out of Green Day’s cancelation. Metallica-flavored lemonade. The Oct. 27 gig will be Metallica’s first appearance in New Orleans since 2008.

“We are excited to be part of our first ever Voodoo Music & Arts Experience,” Metallica’s Lars Ulrich said. “Our good friends and fellow Bay Area residents Green Day had to unfortunately cancel their plans to be there, so we are more than happy to fill in for them in our own unique way. We’re hoping we can fill those very large shoes and do them proud.”

Presented by Rehage Entertainment and taking place at New Orleans’ City Park Oct. 26-28, Voodoo will host headliner Neil Young & Crazy Horse the first night, Jack White the last. Tickets, including VIP packages and camping passes, are still available. Visit TheVoodooExperience.com for more information.
