Tom Waits to make final appearance on Letterman

Tom Waits will make his final appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday, May 14.

The singer/songwriter has performed on the CBS late night program several times over the years – most recently in 2012 – and remains one of the host’s favorite interview guests.

Waits’ appearance comes in the final week of broadcasts by Letterman, who will deliver his farewell program on Wednesday, May 20 after more than three decades in late night.

Waits’ latest release was 2011’s “Bad As Me”, which was nominated for a 2013 Grammy Award in the Best Alternative Music Album category.

The project featured contributions from Flea, Les Claypool and Keith Richards, who performed on five tracks, including the single, “Satisfied.”

The singer last performed at Neil Young’s 27th annual Bridge School Benefit Concert in 2013.
