Metallica will take part in the Super Bowl LV festivities as the rockers announced they’ll be performing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert following the game.
Metallica are seasoned pros at virtual performances at this point in the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recently, the band held their inaugural Helping Hands Concert & Auction benefiting their All Within My Hands non-profit as a pay-per-view streaming event.
The concert was unlike any other Metallica concert as it saw the band go all-acoustic for this special show. Proceeds from the show benefitted the All Within My Hands foundation.
There was also the legendary Metallica Mondays series where the band replayed old concerts every Monday evening. Each show featured commentary from a band member as well as a bit of a backstory about the featured gig.
The series saw Metallica replay concerts from early on in their career all the way up until recent shows in 2019.
