Well, it happened. Metallica crossed their "new frontier" over the weekend, when they performed in Antarctica.
Yesterday, the band posted several photos from the ice-cold gig, which took place Saturday, on their Facebook page. You can see them in the photo gallery below.
The band also posted this blurb:
"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 cannot describe how happy everyone was."
The band cranked out 10 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."
