The band makes it official...
Metallica have confirmed their planned gig in Antarctica. The metal band announced the news on their website, revealing that the performance will take place at the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini on December 8th underneath a metal dome, with the audio transmitted to the crowd via headphones.
The audience will consist of winners from a competition in Latin America, who will win a trip on an Antarctic cruise running from December 3rd through the 10th. This is the second gig ever performed on the continent and the first band with worldwide recognition.
The band wrote, "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."
