Metallica Plans Week-Long Residency on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”

The legendary rock band has booked a week-long residency on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson from November 17 to November 21. James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo will perform together each night, and Craig will interview the band on November 17.

The residency will celebrate both the end of Ferguson's time as the host of The Late Late Show and the 10 year anniversary reissue of Metallica's behind-the-scenes documentary, Metallica: 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," Ulrich tells Rolling Stone. "Nothing to sell, nothing to promote (except a reissue DVD)...purely hanging at Craig's personal request. Bring it!"

Ferguson announced that he would be leaving The Late Late Show just a few weeks after David Letterman announced his retirement from The Late Show. His last show will air in December. British actor and comedian James Corden will replace Ferguson as the host of The Late Late Show.

Earlier this month, Foo Fighters performed a week-long residency on The Late Show with David Letterman with a star-studded guest line up including Heart, Zac Brown, Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick and Tony Joe White.
