The heavy metal band jammed to 100 contest winners in what can honestly be called “the coolest show on Earth.” The concert appropriately dubbed, “Freeze Em All Off” but no one did, since the concert was played inside a toasty, warm transparent dome. Yeah, the band may be old; but they’re not crazy.
