As part of the Jägermeister Ice Cold Gig series, prog metal favourites TesseracT have achieved a new standard for outlandish gig locations by playing the first ever set on an igloo, which spanned the equivalent of 3.5 double decker buses and is located near Yllas village, Finland. You can watch a short video about the gigloo below:
Guitarist James Monteith commented, “We’re great mates first and foremost, so we’ve shared some amazing moments. But even after playing the main stage at Sonisphere last year, the Jägermeister Ice Cold Gig was definitely TessaracT’s most challenging performance to date, and what an amazing experience it was. Something we’ll remember forever!
The final stage build was tougher going than we expected – we were shifting one-tonne blocks of ice to create the steps leading up to the stage. Fortunately, we had a team of locals to help us and the effort was well worth it. It was absolutely freezing, but as soon as we saw the crowd of people adrenalin took over, the hard work was forgotten and we battled through the gig.”
