Metallica Set for The Late Show’s Post-Super Bowl Episode
This is close, though: they’re set to perform on A Late Show: Super Bowl Edition, a special live edition of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Other guests slated to appear include Robert Downey Jr. and Tiffany Haddish.
The episode will air on CBS — the same network broadcasting the Super Bowl — after the game ends. They have it slotted for 11:35 PM ET/8:35 PM PT, but that’s obviously subject to change.
Metallica have recently been working on new material, although drummer Lars Ulrich recently admitted that progress has moved at a “glacial” pace.
