I expect musical performances on late night TV. It’s standard. What is unusual is for any artist to play more than one song. Miley Cyrus had a residency of sorts last month on “The Tonight Show”, which was fun, but it was nothing like what happened yesterday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. Brad Paisley and legendary Creedance Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty played a full outdoor concert for Kimmel’s live concert series. The best part is you can watch the whole thing online.
The duo teamed up to honor veterans and was played in front of the Battleship USS Iowa in Los Angeles ahead of Veterans Day on Nov. 11.
The concert is broken up into 14 separate videos – one for each song – totaling over an hour of live music. That is a lot of free music for a late night talk show to give out for free. And this isn’t any ole concert: we may not have ever seen these two onstage like this without Kimmel stepping in. It, truly, is a gift for any music lover.
If you don’t have time to watch all of the videos, here are a few of our favorite numbers.
