The mighty Metallica performed “their most unique show ever” this past weekend in Antarctica and the first footage from the amazing show is below! The set was only ten songs, but with these classic tracks and the fan’s energy surrounding them, this was a moment no one in attendance will ever forget! Here’s what the band said on the experience: “This was the most unique show Metallica has ever done. The band, contest winners, research station scientists (from Russia, South Korea, China, Poland, Chile, Brazil and Germany), and the ship crew, all crammed in this little dome out on the helipad of Carlini Station in Antarctica! The energy in the little dome was amazing! Words can not describe how happy everyone was. The band cranked out ten songs for the small crowd including ‘Creeping Death’, ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’, ‘Sad But True’, ‘Welcome Home (Sanitarium)’, ‘Master of Puppets’, ‘One’, ‘Blackened’, ‘Nothing Else Matters’, ‘Enter Sandman’ and ‘Seek & Destroy.’ No word on if there were any penguins were attendance.”

The show was transmitted to the audience via headphones with no amplification, so the sound quality of any videos won’t be perfect, but check out the intimate set from the dome below! It’s Metallica right in your face surrounded by a frozen world! This is AMAZING!
Here’s the full set too! I WISH I WAS THERE!!!
