The one corner of the world they have never played, and now Coke Zero is sending them to play there.
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!
You can win your way if you live in South America, but if you don't want to make the treck to see Metallica, have no fear, they are going to take video and I'm sure charge you to watch it in some form or fassion soon. Want a cheaper way to see this show?? Just watch 'Through The Never', you can get your fix there.
