Regina Spektor, Andrew Bird, Billy Corgan on Tap for 'Last Call With Carson Daly' Launch
Last Call with Carson Daly returns to Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theatre for a week of special performances.
Kicking off its 12th season on Sept. 25, the NBC late-night staple will step into the beloved, legendary venue for the second consecutive year, partnering with Ford to bring music from Regina Spektor, Andrew Bird, Estelle and Chairlift to viewers at home.
Guests on tap for “Greek Week” include Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan, political commentator Chris Hayes, comedian Rob Delaney and Looper director Rian Johnson.
No stranger to location shooting, host Daly (who holds the same position on The Voice) has long espoused giving exposure to indie and emerging artists, recently featuring such acts as M83, .fun and rapper Kendrick Lamar. Going further back, Gavin DeGraw and Maroon 5 made their network television debuts on the program.
