Craig Ferguson's 'Late Late Show' Books Scottish Band for One-Week Residency
Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire impressed Ferguson with their Feb. 17 appearance, prompting the group to land a weeklong stay on the CBS late-night talker.
Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show booked a weeklong residency for the first time in years.
Glasgow rock band Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire will perform for the entire week starting Feb. 24 on CBS' 12:35 a.m. talker, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire was a musical guest on the Feb. 17 episode, where they performed the song "Bright Light Fever." Ferguson, a Scotland native, discovered the band himself.
Weeklong residencies for the Late Late Show are relatively few and far between, and this one evolved naturally. Following the show, Late Late Show producers met with Ferguson for a discussion on the night's taping. Ferguson expressed enthusiasm about the band and tasked producers to see if Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire could be featured for an entire week.
Roddy Hart and the Lonesome Fire will perform five different songs from Feb. 24 to 28.
In the past several months, the Late Late Show has welcomed 19-year-old singer-songwriter Jake Bugg; ZZ Ward; The Lone Bellow; and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Previous residencies on the show have included Richie Sambora, Bone Patrol and The Imagineers.
