As promised, Tom Waits appeared on last night’s episode of Late Show with David Letterman, where he performed material from last year’s Bad As Me for the first time. Backed by a full band, including his son Casey on drums and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo on guitar, Waits offered an extended version of the album opener, “Chicago”. Prior to the performance, the eccentric songwriter also sat down for a brief interview, discussing 19th century rat traps. Watch the replay below (via The Audio Perv).

Waits will also appear on tomorrow night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Check back to CoS for that video replay as well.

Amazing performance! Breathless. i saw the David Letterman program from Perth, Australia, and can’t believe I found this gem of an artist. Didn’t even know he sings! I couldn’t take my eyes off his performance and the music is eclectic and oh so sexy. Glad that David Letterman is showcasing non-mainstream artists on his show. You’re my fav man Dave! :)
