Metallica To Perform On ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ Metallica will be making an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert next week. The band is booked to perform on the Wednesday, March 3rd episode. It will be their first Late Show appearance since 2017, when they played “Now That We’re Dead”. The band advertised the appearance on social media but didn’t drop any hints about what songs they might perform. Have you watched any of the late night talk shows during the pandemic? Is it different without a live audience?
