Metallica have been confirmed as guests on the new season of Carpool Karaoke.
The thrash giants have just announced the North American leg of their WorldWired tour in support of latest album Hardwired… To Self Destruct. But despite a full schedule, the band found time for some light-hearted fun with comedian Billy Eichner. Watch the teaser trailer below.
A statement reads: “Based on the segment that has become a global, viral video sensation on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the new Carpool Karaoke series features 16 celebrity pairings riding along in a car together as they sing tunes from their personal playlists and surprise fans who don’t expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over.”
Other celebrities confirmed for the new series, which will air on Apple’s streaming service, include Will Smith, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Michael Strahan, John Cena and Shaquille O’Neal.
Tickets for the Metallica’s North American tour go on sale to fan club members today and on general release on February 17 (Friday) at 10am local time.
