Foo Fighters Perform On David Letterman's Final Show

(hennemusic) The Foo Fighters gave David Letterman a musical send-off on his final broadcast on Wednesday night after more than three decades in late night television.

Dressed in tuxedos but not seen again once the first notes of the song rang out, the group performed one of The Late Show host's favorite songs, "Everlong", while a montage of clips from the program's history streamed by.

Letterman explained the song - from the band's 1997 album, "The Colour And The Shape" - held special meaning for him as he recovered from quintuple bypass surgery in January of 2000.

When producers planned the host's return after a 6-week period of recovery, Letterman requested they try to arrange for the Foo Fighters to appear; the band agreed and cancelled shows in South America to return to New York for the host and the program.

An outspoken fan of the Foo Fighters throughout the years, Letterman went on to develop personal and professional relationship with the band, including using his company - Worldwide Pants - to assist in the production of the group's "Sonic Highways" TV series last year as they worked on their 8th album.
