Metallica Announce Late Late Show Residency

Metallica have announced that they will do a week-long residency on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson to commemorate the host’s departure. (Ferguson — who announced he was leaving the show shortly after Letterman earlier this year — will air his last episode sometime in December.) The band will sit down for an interview on Monday, November 17th, and will play every night that week. The dates of their performances correspond with the 10th anniversary reissue of doocumentary Some Kind Of Monster. “What better way to celebrate Craig’s awesome tenure at CBS than to come and shake the rafters for a whole week,” Lars Ulrich said to Rolling Stone. “Nothing to sell, nothing to promote (except a reissue DVD) … purely hanging at Craig’s personal request. Bring it!” The last residency of this type was for Foo Fighters, who took over Letterman earlier this month.
