Craig Ferguson’s last night as host of The Late Late Show takes place sometime in December — the date is still TBA — and he intends to go out with a bang, not a whimper. Rolling Stone reports that Craig has booked Metallica for a week of shows celebrate the ten-year-anniversary reissue of their documentary Some Kind of Monster — but mostly to celebrate Craig. "What better way to celebrate Craig's awesome tenure at CBS than to come and shake the rafters for a whole week,” said Metallica's Lars Ulrich. "Nothing to sell, nothing to promote (except a reissue DVD) ... purely hanging at Craig's personal request. Bring it!"
