Vans will be returning to Orion in 2013, featuring pro skating demos happening right alongside live music. Vans will also feature four signature models of the Vans x Metallica footwear at Orion, including two Kill 'Em All styles.

So, I could spend something like $120 for a stacked 3 day lineup at Rock on the Range, or spend $175 for two days with only a couple bands worth seeing.
Detroit aint that bad a place, but if Metallica really wants this to be a national draw, they need to have some more bands lined up. Drop the 'lifestyle' crap. Put some bands like Godsmack and Kid Rock on the bill to draw a more 'mainstream' crowd if you have to, I'd be happy to see them rather than the Kirk and Lars sideshow.
