With Craig Ferguson’s final broadcast as host of The Late Late Show fast approaching, Metallica have booked a week-long residency on the program to play him out in style ((YEAH!!!)). The band will sit for an interview with the comedian on November 17th and perform a song on the show every night that week.
Metallica Drummer Lars Ulrich says, “What better way to celebrate Craig’s awesome tenure at CBS than to come and shake the rafters for a whole week?!?! Nothing to sell, nothing to promote…purely hanging at Craig’s personal request. Bring it!”
Is it a coincidence that group’s appearance on The Late Late Show coincides with the 10 year anniversary reissue of the Metallica documentary ‘Some Kind of Monster‘, which comes out on November 24th??? Maybe. Maybe not.
The band also has a vinyl pressing of their new song “Lords Of Summer” scheduled to be released on Record Store Day (November 28th, 2014).
