Metallica’s upcoming concert in Antarctica won’t just be their most remote gig of all time – it will be their quietest. The band have confirmed plans for a show on the planet’s iciest continent, revealing that due to Antarctica’s unique conditions, they will be performing without amplifiers.
It’s a “journey to the bottom of the Earth”, Metallica wrote on their website. The US rockers are traveling to Argentina’s Antarctic research base, Carlini, to perform “near the heliport” on Sunday 8 December. A group of contest winners will rendezvous with the band at Carlini as part of a 10-day Antarctic cruise.
