Metallica Added to Guinness World Records After Antarctica Show
Metallica have made it into the 2015 Guiness World Records book by becoming the first musical act to perform a concert on every continent.

Metallica nonetheless played a show in the freezing continent back in December, when they performed to 120 scientists and competition winners in a transparent dome at Carlini Station. The hour-long show was dubbed "Freeze 'Em All," and included ten tracks.

This means that band have now performed in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Antarctica.

Lead singer James Hetfield said, "Seven continents in one year with Antarctica being THE gig of a lifetime ... Yes, 120 scientists and competition winners. Not to mention the 300 very curious penguins!"

Elsewhere in the Guiness World Records, One Direction have been awarded for being the only UK group in US chart history to top the chart with their first three albums.
