Metallica still haven't played the Super Bowl halftime show (that honor went to The Weeknd this year), but for 2021 they did appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert's post-Super Bowl special, where they ripped through a rendition of their classic track "Enter Sandman." It was their first live performance since their acoustic livestream in November, and they were filmed surrounded by amps from previous tours and special sets in the background, which, according to the YouTube description, include:
