VIDEO: Metallica preview Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson residency

Metallica are sharing a preview of the band’s week-long residency on CBS-TV’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, which starts tonight.

A first look at frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich as they are welcomed on the show can be seen at Entertainment Weekly.

“We're excited to celebrate Craig Ferguson's final season on CBS as he has personally invited us to join him for an entire week of performances starting Monday, November 17th,” posted the band. “We'll be playing every night that week and on the first night (Monday) we'll sit down with Craig to chat about all things 'Tallica.”

The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson airs weeknights on CBS at 12:37 AM EST.

The Metallica news follows a similar move by the Foo Fighters, who launched their HBO series, "Sonic Highways", recently with a week of performances on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Both shows are produced by Letterman’s Worldwide Pants.
