METALLICA Visits Russian Research Station In Antarctica

Acording to RIA Novosti, METALLICA visited a Russian polar research station after playing in Antarctica this past weekend.

The members of the band had accepted an invitation from Russian polar researchers who attended the December 8 show to visit the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute after the gig inside a dome at Argentina's Carlini base.

METALLICA's 10-song show in Antarctica on Sunday "was the most unique show [the band] has ever done," the group said in a statement. "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 cannot describe how happy everyone was."

The METALLICA concert was sponsored by Coca-Cola Zero and fans from several Latin and South American countries had a chance to enter a contest and win the opportunity to join the band on the expedition.

The concert took place under a dome at the Carlini Argentine Base and was heard by the fans through headphones, with no other amplifiers or sound system. The gig was also live-streamed in the participating countries.
