- Metallica To Play In Antarctica: Metallica will perform in Antarctica. The concert will take place inside a dome at the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini on December 8 and the audio will be transmitted to the crowd through headphones. The audience will be made up of competition winning fans from Latin America, who will travel on an Antarctic cruise from December 3-10, stopping at Carlini for the gig. This will be the second ever gig staged on the continent, 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.
