Metallica's Antarctica Concert Gives Them The Honor Of Having Performed On Every Continent

Metallica is truly a world-renowned band. Recently the musicians performed in Antarctica. This means that they have played on every continent on this planet. What's next for them? Performing on the moon? Dubbed "Freeze 'Em All," the Metallica concert was hosted at a heliport near the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini. This performance was for a mere 120 people. Among the attendees were world scientists. Earlier, Coca-Cola Zero held a contest in Latin America; those who won got a ticket to the concert. Getting there and setting up surely was tricky. The preparation for the concert was complicated. Metallica had to follow "international Antarctic protocol to preserve the fragile local environment." Even during the performance there were strict protocols to follow, which included no amplification of songs. To make up for the lack of loudness, the band transmitted their music via headphones. The concert was also live-streamed and recorded for later release. For those interested in what was played or can barely wait for the concert to be released, the "10-song, hour-long show" featured the following songs: 1. "Creeping Death" 2. "For Whom the Bell Tolls" 3. "Sad But True" 4. "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" 5. "Master of Puppets" 6. "One" 7. "Blackened" 8. "Nothing Else Matters" 9. "Enter Sandman" 10. "Seek & Destroy" Apparently, the band was quite excited about the show. They wrote on their Facebook page, "This was the most unique show Metallica has ever done." The message went on say, "The energy in the little dome was amazing! Words can not describe how happy everyone was." Would you want to go to a concert in Antarctica? Is the cold and brutal environment worth braving to get to the show? Do you think going would be worth taking a risk? Do you think other bands will try this unique experience or would just Metallica be the only group to try its hand at performing in this freezing weather? Let us know below.
