Bob Dylan To Perform On Second-To-Last Late Show, First Letterman Appearance In 22 Years

Bob Dylan will perform on the second-to-last night of David Letterman’s longstanding career as host of The Late Show. Dylan rarely makes late-night TV appearances, and hasn’t been on The Late Show since 1993. Dylan is technically Letterman’s final musical guest; the last show, which airs Wednesday 5/20, will feature “an hour filled with surprises.” Eddie Vedder is slated to perform the night before Dylan, on Monday 5/18. The portrait above was taken from Dylan’s appearance on Late Night in 1984, and you can watch a clip of that performance below.
