Metallica have lined up a week long residency on US TV show The Late Late Show.
The band were asked to appear personally by host Craig Ferguson who will leave as host later this year. The move comes soon after Foo Fighters finished a similar residency on The Late Show With David Letterman earlier this month.
Metallica said in a statement: “We’re excited to celebrate Craig Ferguson’s final season on CBS as he’s asked us to join him for an entire week of performances starting on Monday, November 17. We’ll be playing every night that week and on the first night we’ll sit down with Craig and chat about all things ‘Tallica.”
Metallica’s next studio album – the follow up to 2008’s Death Magnetic – is expected next year.
