Metallica did it. They have become the first major music act to play the continent of Antarctica along with the first to play all seven continents.
The Sunday concert near Carlini Scientific Base was called Freeze 'Em All and, because of environmental concerns, was done with traditional amplification. Instead, the speakers were in isolated structures with the sound transmitted to the 120 concert goers via earphones.
Among those attending were winners of a South American contest held by Coca-Cola Zero along with scientists currently stationed on the continent. The whole thing went down in a geodesic dome not far from the base (see picture right which was posted by Metallica to Twitter).
The set list:
•Creeping Death (from Ride the Lightning, 1984)
•For Whom the Bell Tolls (from Ride the Lightning, 1984)
•Sad But True (from Metallica (Black Album), 1991)
•Welcome Home (Sanitarium) (from Master of Puppets, 1986)
•Master of Puppets (from Master of Puppets, 1986)
•One (from ...and Justice For All, 1988)
•Blackened (from ...and Justice For All, 1988)
•Nothing Else Matters (from Metallica (Black Album), 1991)
•Enter Sandman (from Metallica (Black Album), 1991)
•Seek and Destroy (from Kill 'Em All, 1983)
