John Fogerty and Dawes To Appear On Letterman

UPDATE 5/16 7 a.m. PT: John Fogerty's upcoming appearance on CBS's The Late Show With David Letterman has been expanded to two nights. Fogerty is now set to appear on Letterman on the 21st by himself and then along with Dawes on the 22nd.
HIGH PROFILE GIG FOR DAWES
BACKING FOGERTY ON THE LATE SHOW

In 2011 Dawes backed Hall of Fame rocker Robbie Robertson on a string of TV appearances that included a visit to CBS's The Late Show With David Letterman in support of Robbie's How To Become Clairvoyant album. Dawes will reprise their role backing a legendary performer on Letterman come May 22, when the Southern California roots band visits the Ed Sullivan Theater with John Fogerty.

Fogerty will appear on Letterman in support of his soon-to-be-released Wrote A Song For Everyone LP. Dawes performs a Creedence Clearwater Revival song from 1972, "Someday Never Comes," with Fogerty on Wrote A Song For Everyone. So it wouldn't be a stretch to expect the acts to perform that song on The Late Show as they did during a joint appearance at this year's SXSW Music in Austin, TX.

Just a few days after Dawes backs Fogerty on Letterman, the band will embark on a headlining tour. Here's the full list of dates.
