Sub-Zero Metallica Show, First Festival Appearance of 2014, and Wrestling Maynard

The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ


Sub-zero Metallica show


They're the first band to play a show on every continent. Metallica rocked a show in Antactica Sunday to a crowd of 120 scientists and contest winners as part of a sweesptakes from Coca-Cola Zero. The band performed a ton of their classics in what was dubbed the “Freeze ‘Em All” show. Now, they didn’t play outside in the sub-zero elements … they rocked out inside a dome near a heliport of the Carlini Scientific Base. Apparenlty, in accordnacne with Antarctic protocol the band’s amplifiers were in isolation cabinets and crowd members had to listen to the show through headphones. Metallica posted to their Facebook page that it was the most unique show they’ve ever done.  See photos here.


First festival appearance of 2014


The Black Keys are done with their break … or at least come July they’ll be done with their break. The bands first summer festival performance for 2014 is set for Pland’s Open’er Festival. News from the band has been pretty quite after a very successful year.


Wrestling Maynard


Imagine going to wrestling practice in high school, worried you’ll have to get into the sweat chamber just to make weight. And then in walks Tool and A Perfect Circle front man Maynard James Keenan. Well, that’s exactly what happened in Scottville, Michigan. Keenan graduated from Mason County Central High back in 1982, where he was a member of the wrestling squad there. Back in the day, Maynard was known as Jim. He also just so happened to wrestle with another Jim who is now the coach for the Scottville squad. Maynard says he got involved last year knowing that Jim would provide the type of work ethic and pride he grew up with. The Tool front man even paid for 16 wrestlers to attend a wrestling camp, so he got to get out his philanthropic kick as well. Tool is reported to be working on a new album, but it's unclear when that will be released.
