On Elbow’s Late Night Appearance

Elbow is performing tonight on the Late Show with David Letterman.

From an e-mail I received from the band a few weeks ago:

Elbow On Letterman - July 29th

Great news! Elbow will be live on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ on July 29th.

The band will join Dave in the studio to close out the show with a performance of ‘Grounds For Divorce’ - be sure to tune in.

The Late Show goes out at 11.30pm ET/PT on CBS - visit lateshow.cbs.com for more information and local listings.

Elbow is currently touring in support of Coldplay, and then they go back into the studio to record their fifth album.

“Grounds for Divorce” is a fun song. It’s catchy. It’s not my favorite off of The Seldom Seen Kid. It might not even make my top five. But I like it. And the band really gets into it at The Seldom Seen Kid Live at Abbey Road concert.

And then, “Grounds for Divorce” turns up in FOX’s promo for the sixth season of House.

Curiously, I could see Hugh Laurie starring in a Guy Garvey biopic.

I don’t normally watch The Late Show, but I’ll make an exception tonight. 🙂

Oh. Wait. I can’t.

Because of the stupid FCC. 😡

Watch it for me, peeps!

ETA: And it appears I didn’t miss anything. Due to other segments of Letterman’s show running long, Elbow’s appearance was cancelled. The band will be appearing some time in September.

Maybe, by then, I’ll be able to get any CBS station.
