Conan is on tour and you get special musical guests.

..and when you are in Seattle, you have some surprise musical guests drop by. 2 nights ago, Dave Matthews showed up to wish Conan a happy birthday and sing a song..then last night..Eddie Vedder showed up to sing 3 songs:

Don't forget Mike McCready, he was there too for Baba O'Riley!

Soooo glad I was at Seattle night 2. Not because I'm a huge Pearl Jam fan, but I'm an anti-DMB guy. With that said, Vedder and McCready were pretty cool, and their cover of Baba O'Riley rocked.

I think he might be angling to go with a hometown connection for the bands. Vedder got a standing ovation when he came out--par for the course in a Seattle crowd.

I'm sure everyone gets something, it just depends on if it's something good. It seems like bands who have somehow expressed the "I'm with CoCo" vibe are doing this. I know Vedder has talked up Conan in the past, hence his appearance (plus it helped they had played Seattle like the night before). NYC could be They Might Be Giants

I'm hoping the Minneapolis show gets someone good!! Pearl Jam would have been sweet.

Pearl Jam was the very first musical guest on Conan's first Tonight Show....previously they had not even appeared on his 12:30pm Late Night show....
As far as the late night talk shows go, the band had only done The Late Show with David Letterman (multiple times) prior to that....

Ah, I must have remembered the Tonight Show appearance and figured the connection ran deeper than that. However, the Seattle connection AND the playing a show here the night before is pretty strong (the latter more so than the former)

Re: Conan is on tour and you get special musical guests.

Anyone here see Conan's Tour Show? Seems like Youtube just has a lot of singing. Is it's mostly musical? Before this thread, I didn't even know that he was doing a tour. Apparently he's in Phoenix next week.

I'm going to the Saturday show in Vegas next weekend. I'll let ya know after that (although it will be too late if you are going to the Phoenix show).

There is singing, there's standup, there's skits from the show.

Re: Conan is on tour and you get special musical guests.

There's a surprising amount of singing/Conan on guitar

I'll spoiler in case anyone wants to be surprised.

Spoiler:
The band has a really long (and really awesome!) intro, then Conan sings an original called "The Girl Who Looked like Conrad Bain," a bluesy song called "The Brookline Blues," alternate lyrics to "On the Road Again"--"I can't wait to get my own show again," an encore of "40 Days," and there seems to always be a special musical guest.
