Metallica perform Enter Sandman on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Metallica performed their 1991 classic, “Enter Sandman”, on a rare, live special broadcast of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Sunday, February 7 following Super Bowl LV.

The band delivered the track from their storage facility against a backdrop of speaker cabinets from different tours and special Metallica performances from their career.

“Thanks for having us, Stephen!,” shared the group on social media alongside the hashtag trio: #TooHeavyForHalftime #LSSC #LateShow.

“Enter Sandman” was the lead single from the group’s self-titled fifth record; commonly referred to as The Black Album for its cover art, the band’s commercial breakthrough was the first of six straight studio chart-topper in the US, where it has sold 16 million copies.

Metallica’s latest live album, “S&M2”, debuted in the US Top 5 upon its release last year; the project presents material from the group’s two fall 2019 shows with the San Francisco Symphony as the pair officially opened the new Chase Center.
