Metallica Set World Record with Antarctic Concert – Watch it Here [VIDEO]

Metallica in Antarctica

At this point in their career, Metallica have no one left to impress, and no one’s expectations to meet but their own. But, to their credit, they don’t rest on the laurels, and 30 years on, they continue to push the boundaries. They’ve created their own festival – The Orion Fest – that has been hugely successful, and earlier in the year, they dropped a s***load of money to produce “Through the Never”, a concert/action movie that wasn’t so successful. Now, credit them with one more accomplishment – a new world’s record.

This past Sunday (12/8), the band played a Coke Zero sponsored concert in Antarctica, making them the first band to ever play all seven continents in one year.

While not the best show the Mighty Mets have ever played (logistical issues prevented the use of actual amps, so the band plugged into direct inputs, and the audience listened to the performance via headphones), it was interesting to watch the band and the audience interact in such a harsh environment (Antarctica recently set it’s own record – the coldest ever temperature on record, minus 135.8 degrees!!!).

Watch the entire frostbitten show here (the concert actually gets underway around the 9:17 mark):
