The Grateful Dead's Bob Weir to Appear Thursday on "The Late Late Show"

Jesse Grant/Getty Images for NAMMBob Weir will be the sole guest on this Thursday night's edition of CBS' The Late Late Show, which airs at 12:35 a.m. ET/PT.  The founding Grateful Dead singer/guitarist will be interviewed and will perform during the program.

Pop/blues star John Mayer will be the evening's guest host.  Mayer has been known to regularly include Grateful Dead songs in his concerts' set lists, including "Friend of the Devil."  The Late Late Show is featuring a series of guest hosts during the interim between the recent exit of Craig Ferguson and the debut this coming March of new host James Corden.

Expect Weir to chat about The Grateful Dead's recently announced Fare Thee Well reunion shows, which are scheduled for July 3, 4 and 5 at Soldier Field in Chicago.  The concerts will celebrate the band's 50th anniversary and also are expected to be the last shows the surviving original Dead members will play together.  Weir, bassist Phil Lesh and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann will be joined by special guests Trey Anastasio of Phish, Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti.  Visit for all the details about the gigs.
