Bob Dylan closed the penultimate Late Show With David Letterman last night (May 19), performing “The Night We Called It A Day” from his album of Frank Sinatra covers, Shadows In The Night.

The performance was Dylan’s first appearance on Letterman’s show since 1993, when he played “Forever Young”, originally released on Planet Waves 20 years before.


Before the performance, David Letterman revealed that he had brought his son up to rate Dylan as the greatest songwriter of all time.

Letterman is retiring from the show after 33 years, with his final show taking place tonight (May 20, 2015).
