Metallica have shared a full concert film capturing their recent performance in Antarctica, NME reports.
The metal band became only the second ever gig staged on the continent when they played on December 8, following a performance in 2007 from a group of musical scientists, called Nunatak, at British Antarctic Survey's Rothera Research Station as part of the Live Earth climate change awareness concerts. Scroll down to see a setlist from the gig and watch the entire performance.
Metallica performed 10 songs inside a dome at the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini and the audio was transmitted to the crowd of competition winners through headphones. In a statement released after the gig, the band said: "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 can not describe how happy everyone was."
It was recently announced Metallica will headline next year's Sonisphere Festival alongside Iron Maiden and The Prodigy. The Knebworth bash was cancelled in 2013 and 2012 but returns next year from July 4-6. Their appearance features as part of their Metallica By Request tour, where fans will help pick the set list each night from the band's 30-plus year career. Each gig will be comprised of 18 songs – 17 of which will be decided by the 17 top tracks from the public vote, with one brand new song added and decided by the group.
