MetallicaMetallica have confirmed reports suggesting they're heading off to Antarctica for a historic performance at the bottom of the world

The Enter Sandman band will perform near the heliport of the continent's Carlini Argentine Base on December 8th and fans from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico will sail in on a cruise ship as part of a Coca-Cola Zero contest. The cruise will set sail from Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America, on December 3rd.

Announcing the news officially online, the rockers write, "After 30 years as a band, we have been unbelievably fortunate to visit just about every corner of the earth... except for one. That is all about to change as we are set to travel to Antarctica.

"We'll be playing inside a dome on the base and in another twist, the show will be transmitted to the audience via headphones with no amplification... a real first for us."

The concert will also stream live for the band's Latin American fans and will be filmed for audiences elsewhere to watch at an unspecified later date.

It's only the second concert to take place in Antarctica, Nunatak, an indie-rock quintet comprised of members of a science team investigating climate change, performed in front of 17 people in 2007, according to RollingStone.com.
