May 19: Bob Dylan The Night We Called It A Day at Letterman 2015
BOB DYLAN TO PERFORM ON “LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN”
In a rare television appearance, legendary musician Bob Dylan will perform on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Tuesday, May 19 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
This will be Dylan’s first performance on the LATE SHOW in nearly 22 years. His only performance on the CBS broadcast took place Nov. 18, 1993, during the show’s inaugural season on CBS. Previously, he had performed on Letterman’s “Late Night” show twice, on March 22, 1984 and on “Late Night’s” 10th anniversary show Jan. 18, 1992.
Dylan joins the previously announced Bill Murray on the Tuesday, May 19 show, part of the LATE SHOW’s final three broadcasts. As part of this three-night event, Tom Hanks and musical guest Eddie Vedder will appear Monday, May 18. Letterman’s final broadcast of the LATE SHOW will take place Wednesday, May 20
Here he is with a very fitting song, The Night We Called It A Day. Dressed in a black suit with red trim, and a white shirt with a black string tie, BobDylan sang this a jazz standard from the 1940s. It appeared on Dylan’s latest album, Shadows in the Night. Dylan’s voice was incredible.
Jason Isbell does a tremendous live version of his song Stockholm on Letterman about a week ago (23 July).

“As his career has progressed, Isbell has garnered a collection of rabid fans, including David Letterman, who was turned on to him by fellow artist Patty Griffin. Since then Isbell has played Letterman’s show a number of times, and has flown out to Letterman’s Montana ranch to perform at his annual Fourth of July bash.”
Vintage Trouble – Blues Hand Me Down live on Letterman
L.A. blues/rock band Vintage Trouble played on Late Show with David Letterman a couple of nights ago and absolutely blew the roof off the house with an incredible performance of Blues Hand Me Down, the single from their 2011 debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions.
