Metallica - Confirm Show In Antarctica

Recently, Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich stated that the band would cross another frontier this December after their 3D movie. Now it's official that Metallica will play in Antarctica because they never played there and it is the only continent yet where the band never played live. They want to conquer the world and the penguins.

The band explained: "After over 30 years as a band, we have been unbelievably fortunate to visit just about every corner of the earth... except for one. That is all about to change as we are set travel to Antarctica, the only continent that Metallica has never played on until now! We are partnering with Coca-Cola Zero for one of the most unique and special concert events in our career as we'll be performing near the heliport of the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini on Sunday, December 8, 2013.

Latin American fans in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Mexico will be able to enter a contest for the chance to win an Antarctic cruise that sails December 3-10 and will stop at Carlini. We'll be playing inside a dome on the base and in another twist, the show will be transmitted to the audience via headphones with no amplification... a real first for us! The show will also be streamed live for our friends in those Latin American countries who cannot join us at the base and filmed to share with everyone at a later date.

For more details about his amazing adventure, check here. To enter the contest to join us in Antarctica, click here. Contest entry begins on October 28th. Pack up those warm clothes and we'll see you at the bottom of the planet!"

In order to be part of the trip, fans will have to participate in a contest that is being launched in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico, starting on October 28th and until November 22nd. The winners will leave on December 3rd in a cruise from the port of Ushuaia, in Tierra del Fuego, headed for Antarctica. During the 10-day journey, they will be able to enjoy the landscapes of this continent, participate in lectures to be provided by specialists, see audiovisual material on the work of the scientists and receive environmental information.

Hah. That was actually pretty funny.

I'm still looking at this show now feeling utterly bemused. Did someone say to the band "You guys have played nearly everywhere in the world. Only place you've missed in Antarctica!" and one of them (I'm not going to assume it was Lars yet) then said "THEN WE SHALL GO THERE!" and dashed off to prepare the idea before the guy had the chance to say he was kidding about doing Antarctica?

(Actually, thinking about it, I wouldn't be surprised if that WAS the thing that set this idea off...)

Ah well, moving on to the show itself, I'm guessing "Trapped Under Ice", "The Call Of Ktulu" and "The Thing That Should Not Be" are going to be on the setlist already. It's too good an opportunity to miss doing those, since they all make some sense to include for this show...

Maybe if they try as hard as they can they'll generate 0.00000000000000001% of the pollution of an average year in north america

Haha, all those north americans make me laugh: saying all the time that the show is pointless. I like to know if you would say the same thing if that show take place in the Artic.

have you ever seen a silent disco? That would be about the same thing. People with headphones on dancing to disco.
