Watch Metallica’s Antarctica performance in full!
Metallica performed a ten track set at the Antarctic base Carlini Station.
Earlier this week, Metallica became the second band to perform in the ice continent Antarctica.
The one-off gig was sponsored by soft-drinks manufacturer Coca-Cola, who ran a competition, open only to their Latin-American customers, in which tickets for the event were first prize.
Metallica’s ten track performance was witnessed by a relatively small audience, comprising of competition winners and research station scientists, all underneath a dome at the Argentine Antarctic Base, Carlini Station.
“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,” said the band in a statement.
