With Antarctica, Metallica Has Played On All Seven Continents In 2013. [Video]

Metallica in Antarctica

Seems like just yesterday, Metallica was badass. Now they’re performing concerts in Antarctica to break records. From LS:

“A large group of Coca-Cola Zero contest winners and scientists were in attendance and, to help prevent noise pollution, listened to the live music through headphones. Music from the ‘Freeze ‘Em All‘ concert is available to purchase from Metallica’s online store.”

The headphones were an environmentally sensitive touch but I don’t think it makes up for unnecessarily landing a plane full of people and equipment in Antarctica for a Coke promo event. I wonder if anyone in Metallica’s current lineup still wishes they were badass. [LS]
