Metallica Performs ‘Freeze ‘Em All’ Concert in Antarctica [Videos + Photos]
Metallica made history yet again by performing in Antarctica on Dec. 8. Contest winners were brought to Carlini Station to enjoy the sub-zero Metallica concert, which the band dubbed ‘Freeze ‘Em All.’
With this show, Metallica can now say that they’ve played all seven continents. Even more impressive, Metallica performed gigs in all seven continents in 2013 alone. Performing inside a small dome, Metallica cranked out a 10-song set for Coca-Cola Zero contest winners. No, Metallica didn’t play ‘Trapped Under Ice,’ but the metal legends jammed a set filled with fan favorites such as ‘Sad But True,’ ‘Master of Puppets’ and ‘Enter Sandman.’
What made it more interesting is that the full sound was only heard through special headphones given to the concertgoers, as shown in the first video below.
Metallica shared a bunch of photos from the Antarctica performance on their Facebook page along with a recap of the show:
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
