Journey To The BOTTOM Of The Earth

October 24, 2013

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.

To enter the contest to join us in Antarctica, click here: http://www.coca-colazero.com.ar. Contest entry begins on October 28th.

Pack up those warm clothes and we'll see you at the bottom of the planet!

They'd better fucking play Trapped Under Ice or I'm disowning them

Heard this on the radio today and was really surprised, I really wander how the headphone thing is gonna work out, but all I know is whoever plans to go down there better be prepared to face painful cold weather, especially since all the countries mentioned usually have pretty hot climates.And agreed, Trapped Under Ice needs to be played, wouldn't be a half-bad opening song come to think of it.

If GWAR doesn't open that's just a missed opportunity.

Lame that only fans from a handful of countries even have the opportunity to go.

Ahhh I was hoping the opening sentence would end with "Ride The Lightning in it's entirety for it's 30th anniversary in 2014" but this is still pretty cool. Agree with Gwar and Immortal too!

All threads with intentionally half finished titles are shit. Basic rule of the internet, and indeed life. If you have to tease then what you have to offer isn't as good as you think it is.

Wintersun would be an awesome opener for this gig IMO.
