Super Bowl Sunday is the weekend, which the National Football League annual championship finals happen. For this year’s Super Bowl, Metallica is said to have a wicked performance in “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”.
The games and the shows generally happen to be on the first Sunday in February. The event is sometimes referred to as an unofficial holiday by people. The 54th annual event, occurred last year on February 2, 2020. This year’s event is known to occur on February 7, 2021.
The exciting news was announced by the band via Twitter and Instagram.

Late Show is a late-night talk show hosted by Stephen Colbert. The first show premiered on September 8 back in 2015. Spartina Productions and CBS Television Studios are producers of the show.
Metallica isn’t going to be on the late show for the first time. Back in May 2017, Metallica performed the song “Now That We’re Dead” on one of the episodes of the show. The band also gathered and sat down for an interview.
When is Metallica Performing On The Late Show?
Metallica will be on Super Bowl LV late show on Sunday at 11:35 pm EST on CBS. Be sure to check it out!
This year’s Super Bowl weekend will have the rock spirit going on even if the halftime performance is reserved for The Weeknd. Green Day was just announced as part of the NFL Honors ceremony on Saturday night, February 6.
To remind you, back in the year’s frontman James Hetfield, felt that they will never play in the Super Bowl. He talked in an interview and said: “As far as us playing halftime for the Super Bowl, I have a feeling that ship has passed. We’re not a variety show. We’re not pop. We’re not sparkly, and all that kind of stuff that seems to be what’s needed for that.”
