Letterman Music Files | Phish Through The Years

When it came time for Vermont quartet Phish to make their national television debut in 1994 more than ten years after forming, they chose to appear on the Late Show With David Letterman. The band has since returned a number of times throughout the years including their final appearance last summer which also saw Phish perform a special Live On Letterman set. Tonight marks David Letterman’s final show as host of the Late Show and today we conclude Letterman Music Files by collecting Phish’s visits to the CBS program.

Along with a handful of typical one-song appearances on the Late Show, Phish also played a pair of sets at the Ed Sullivan Theater. The first took place on the venue’s marquee during the band’s Summer Tour 2004 and the second went down inside the venue last June as a Live On Letterman webcast.
