Punk, Metal, Hardcore music reviews and all-around nerd podcast
In what seems to be some sort of plot for world domination, Metallica and Coca-Cola are teaming up for a concert in Antartica at Base Carlini. The show will take place December 8, 2013, and will be live streamed across Latin America. In a strange twist, the audience attending the show will listen to the band play via headphones, as the band will not be amplified.
Below is the official press release:
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.

Pack up those warm clothes and we’ll see you at the bottom of the planet!
For our spanish-speaking friends, here is a video about the event.
