Mumford & Sons to Kick Off ‘Legends on Letterman’ Concert Web Series

Dave Letterman’s farewell to latenight is being commemorated with yet another sendoff, this time in the form of a Web concert series.

“Legends on Letterman” will feature performances from musical acts that performed on “The Late Show” during its 21-year run, with Mumford & Sons performing on the debut installment.

“Legends” is a special edition of existing Web series “Live on Letterman,” which has been running for the past few years as an extension of the brief musical appearances “The Late Show” affords. After a band or artist has taped a performance for television, a new audience is brought in for a 45-minute set that airs live on the CBS website. “Legends” will follow a similar format.

CBS Interactive’s series will premiere live on CBS.com, CBS apps and select CBS Radio and CBS Audience Network websites.

Mumford & Sons made their first U.S. latenight TV appearance with Letterman in 2010. The band kicks off the “Legends” series on May 5 at 8 p.m., preceding their appearance on “The Late Show” later that night on CBS.

Dave Matthews Band is set for a May 7 appearance on “Legends on Letterman.”
