Metal legends may be playing sub-zero show…

Metallica to Play in Antarctica?
53
What does the metal band who has done everything do next? For Metallica, it seems that the answer is to play a show on the edge of the world... According to the Columbian website for Coca-Cola Zero (via Blabbermouth), Metallica are set to play two Coca-Cola sponsored concerts in Antarctica on December 2nd and December 15th. The announcement would tally with recent cryptic statements that Lars Ulrich made to 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." If Metallica do indeed end up playing at the South Pole, they’d be missing a trick by not dropping "Trapped Under Ice" into the setlist...

    "Metallica to play on the Moon?"* On UG, every other news headline must have a question mark.

    Guitar Hero: Metallica foreshadowed this. Makes me wonder how long this has been in the works... o.O

    Just like in Guitar Hero Metallica. The last level, they go to Antarctica and perform in front of this squid thing. They performed The Thing That Should Not Be. I bet they'll be the first band in history to perform in Antarctica.

    Aw, c'mon UG! Why'd you get rid of the Hetfield + Ulrich penguin photoshop pics?! I thought it was hilarious.

    Well, at least it will be Summer when they play there, if it takes place in December.
