Metallica Performs Live Concert In Antarctica
Empress Eve   |  

Metallica Antarctica Freeze Em All logo

Metallica has performed all over the world on every continent except Antarctica — until now! The band ventured to the frozen continent to perform their very first show there, which took place on December 8, 2014 near the heliport of the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini.

Research station scientists from various countries as well as contest winners were in attendance at the historic show, which featured the band members — singer/guitarist James Hetfield, lead guitarist Kirk Hammett, drummer Lars Ulrich, and bassist Robert Trujillo — playing inside a clear dome with no amplification with the fans listening to the concert through headphones.

Check out a few photos here below the band released from their antarctic performance.

The concert was sponsored by Coca-Cola Zero, which ran a contest in select Latin America countries with the winners getting a 10-day cruise to Antarctica, along with admission to the Metallica concert, as well as other activities. The concert was also live-streamed online in those participating countries.

At the concert, the band, wrapped up in winter garb, played 10 of their original songs — Creeping Death, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Sad But True, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Master of Puppets, One, Blackened, Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, and Seek & Destroy. (I guess “Trapped Under Ice” would have hit too close to home in the frozen tundra!)

From the official Metallica Facebook page:

This was the most unique show Metallica has ever done. The band, contest winners, research station scientists (from Russia, South Korea, China, Poland, Chile, Brazil and Germany), and the ship crew, all crammed in this little dome out on the helipad of Carlini Station in ANTARCTICA! The energy in the little dome was amazing! Words can not describe how happy everyone was.

The band cranked out 10 songs for the small crowd including Creeping Death, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Sad But True, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Master of Puppets, One, Blackened, Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, and Seek & Destroy.

No word on if there were any penguins were attendance. #FreezeEmAll
