Metallica have scheduled a weeklong residency on the Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson in November, with the band confirming the news on Twitter.

“We’ll be playing on @LateLateShowCBS for an entire week starting Monday, November 17th! #LateLateShow,” the band posted on October 29th.
The performances help mark the 10th-anniversary reissue of the Metallica documentary Some Kind of Monster, which will be available on November 24th as a digital release and on Blu-ray.

The band’s residency comes as Ferguson is nearing the end of his late-night CBS run. He took over from Craig Kilborn as host of the show in January 2005, and his final episode is set to air on a yet-to-be-announced date in December. James Corden will grab the reins in March 2015.
Booking musical acts for weeklong stints has become somewhat trendy for late-night shows, as the Foo Fighters had such a gig on the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this month.

    I am very sad to see Craig go. 🙁 I really love him and Josh Robert Thompson, who voices his robot skeleton side kick, Geoff.

    Guess, it won’t be “a great day for America,” or me.

    D from 🙂

    Hopefully their psychiatrist will be there to help them get through.

    Why the hell do they want to remember anything to do with that disaster called Some Kind of Monster??? I’ve never looked at this band the same way since. This is just more b.s. to postpone the new album that they are out of ideas for. Maybe they can record these tv performances for a live dvd called “Ferguson Magnetic”. Ugh, I just get disgusted when I think of what this band once was. Newsted left at probably the best time. He made a ton of money and got out before the crying and therapy started.

    Another band that should call it quits…
