Sting, Judas Priest, Jane’s Addiction Take Over Late Night Television
Sting, having just turned 60 with an all-star concert, is celebrating 25 years as a solo artist and will appear on the Late Show with David Letterman (CBS) tonight, Oct.3. His new CD ‘Best Of 25 Years’ will be released on Oct. 18 and includes remastered songs, remixes and three unearthed live recordings.
Blondie will perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC) Thursday, Oct. 6. Currently touring the USA, the band are supporting their latest ‘Panic Of Girls’, which is their ninth studio album and their first release since the ‘Curse Of Blondie’ in 2003.
Turn the channel fast because Jane’s Addiction will also be on Thursday. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) Oct. 6, the band is supporting their upcoming release ‘The Great Escape’ which drops on Oct. 18. Jane’s Addiction is also out playing a handful of gigs, choosing to perform in small, intimate, settings.
Last but not least, Judas Priest will appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC) in support of their new title, ‘The Chosen Few’ (songs chosen by their peers) which comes out on Oct. 11.
Pink Floyd ruled the small screen last week, taking over Jimmy Fallon’s show every night with special guest performances and interviews that resulted in an all-star tribute to the band. Due to the massive Pink Floyd re-issue campaign both Nick Mason and Roger Waters stopped by as well as other artists such as MGMT, Dierks Bentley and Pearl Jam. Renowned rock photographer Mick Rock also stopped by having worked with Syd Barrett, David Bowie and Lou Reed amongst others.
In addition to all this late-night activity, you’re going to need to clear room this week on your DVRs for HBO’s two-part George Harrison documentary. So, hand over that remote and pass the popcorn please.
