Metallica Planning to Perform in Antarctica?!
Are Metallica planning to perform a concert in Antarctica??? According to Coca-Cola Zero, not only will Metallica be transported to the icy continent to play a gig, but one lucky winner and a guest of their choice will witness the groundbreaking performance in person.
We all know that the monsters of GWAR live in Antarctica, but to our knowledge, they've never actually played a gig on Planet Earth's most southern land mass. Thus, enter Metallica. The iconic thrash band has been hellbent on reaching monumental peaks as of late, having organized two annual 'Orion Music + More' festivals and releasing the 3D concert film 'Metallica Through the Never.' This Antarctica adventure, however, could top them both.
According to Coca-Cola's Columbian website, all you have to do is collect three labels of 250ml Coca-Cola Zero bottles and mail them in for a chance to win the metal-as-hell trip to Antarctica. The contest runs from Oct. 14 - Nov. 9 and the Metallica concert will occur sometime between Dec. 2 - Dec. 15.
This Antarctica gig may be what Metallica's Lars Ulrich recently teased during an interview with a San Francisco radio station. "There's a very interesting thing coming our way in December . . . There's another frontier heading in Metallica's direction in December. 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." [via Blabbermouth]
