Metallica, Live In Antarctica?

03:31 PM Tuesday 10/22/13 | |

Get out your parka, scarf and gloves for this bit of news. Metallica is reportedly going to follow in the footsteps of Nunatak – the British Antarctic Survey’s (BAS) Rothera Research Station’s house band – by becoming the second rock band to ever play Antarctica.

The details about the show are pretty sketchy. Blabbermouth points to the Colombian website for Coca-Cola Zero, which is giving away tickets to a Metallica concert in Antarctica.

The contest – which is open to folks in Bogotá, Cali, Medellín, Villavicencio, Bucaramanga y Cúcuta – doesn’t specify exactly when the concert will take place. According to the English translation of the conditions and restrictions, the winner and a companion, who must be 18-24 years old, must be available to travel to Antarctica from Dec. 2-15. Prizes also include Gibson electric guitars and amps as well as Sony headphones.

Blabbermouth notes that the contest coincides with a quote drummer Lars Ulrich gave a San Francisco radio station last month.

“There’s a very interesting thing coming our way in December . . . There’s another frontier heading in Metallica’s direction in December,” Ulrich said. “Which, if anybody (at the band's management) even knew that I just said what I just said, they would hunt me down and silence me. But there is another frontier coming in December, which we’re very excited about.”

Could Antarctica be the new frontier?

Nunatak conquered Antarctica by participating in Live Earth in July 2007, marking the first festival that took place on all seven continents. The performance, which featured a live audience made up of the scientists’ 17 colleagues, was broadcast around the world online, and in the U.S. via satellite radio and on NBC.
