Chiseling a place for themselves in the Guinness Book of World Records, rock group Fall Out Boy plans to become the first band ever to play all seven continents in less than nine months. Led by singer Pete Wentz Patrick Stump, the group will jump on board a private jet in southern Chile for a 90-minute flight to Antarctica, set up in a gymnasium located on a research facility, and rock out for the assembled team of scientists. We predict crowd surfing and gratuitous nudity during the entire jam session. From the article,

“Fall Out Boy began their multi-continental trek last summer with a gig in Johannesburg, South Africa, followed by Europe, Asia, Australia and North America last fall. They’ll play a concert in Santiago, Chile, on March 23, taking care of South America. And then there’s the Antarctica show, which will take place on the Base Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva, a Chilean research base located on the Fildes Peninsula of King George Island. The Frei base is situated near Russian, Chinese and Czech research facilities, and scientists from those facilities will also be attending the FOB concert — which, according to Crush, will feature the band plugging into the gymnasium’s PA system — adding a whole new level of absurdity to the scenario.”

I love it. The group will also be teaming up with Greenpeace to raise awareness of Global Warming — and a film crew will be on hand to document the experience. Of course, FOB isn’t the only group grooving in colder climates. Earlier this year, 30 Seconds to Mars performed less than 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Greenland. They also created a short film with the NRDC to highlight climate change, as well as organizing a green website for information about current environmental issues. Kudos to both groups for making the effort.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
