Stephen Colbert, like the rest of the late-night talk show hosts, has been getting musicians to perform from home during the pandemic. On Thursday night’s episode of The Late Show, he had Brian Wilson on to perform “Love And Mercy” on his piano. “Hi this is Brian Wilson, everyone,” Wilson introduced himself. “I just want you guys to know we’re all in this together.” Behind him, you can see a copy of Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper’s.
Wilson was scheduled to be on tour in Europe right now, but that naturally was cancelled.
