Metallica play special gig in Antarctica - watch

The metal group play a 10-song set inside a dome at the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini

Metallica played a special gig in Antarctica yesterday (December 8).

The metal band performed 10 songs inside a dome at the Argentine Antarctic Base Carlini and the audio was transmitted to the crowd through headphones. Click above to watch the band play their song 'For Whom the Bell Tolls' in front of an audience made up of competition winning fans from Latin America. Scroll down to watch more footage of their performances of 'Sad But True' and 'Creeping Death' and see a full setlist from the show, via Stereogum.

It was only 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.

The Metallica concert was staged in conjunction with Coca Cola Zero. Writing at Metallica.com ahead of the concert, the band said: "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 show will also be streamed live for our friends in those Latin American countries who cannot join us at the base and filmed to share with everyone at a later date."

Metallica played:

'Creeping Death'
'For Whom The Bell Tolls'
'Sad But True'
'Welcome Home (Sanitarium)'
'Master Of Puppets'
'One'
'Blackened'
'Nothing Else Matters'
'Enter Sandman'
'Seek & Destroy'
