Update: With the release of “Hardwired … to Self-Destruct” quickly approaching, Metallica made another appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Accompanied by Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, the band performed a classroom instruments version of “Enter Sandman” in the “Tonight Show Music Room.”
The clip aired as part of Wednesday night’s episode. A video and photo of the performance are featured below.
Metallica’s new album arrives this Friday.
In late September, Metallica introduced “Moth Into Flame” with a heavy, hard-rocking performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
Wednesday night, the iconic metal band returns for a decidedly different sort of performance.
Joined by Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, the band enters the “Tonight Show Music Room” to perform with classroom instruments. The recurring sketch is a fan favorite; previous “classroom instruments” performances have involved artists like Adele, Meghan Trainor, and One Direction.
The performance airs as part of Wednesday’s episode. It provides the band with additional hype and exposure ahead of this Friday’s “Hardwired… to Self-Destruct” album release.
The episode, which also features appearances by Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown and a performance by Macklemore with Ariana DeBoo, airs beginning at 11:35PM ET/PT.
