METALLICA - Confirm Show In Antarctica2013-10-25
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.

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.
