Swedish act The Tallest Man on Earth visited Conan last night for a terrific performance “Sagres” off recently released album Dark Bird is Home.
Earlier in the episode, O’Brien actually encouraged viewers to switch the channel to watch David Letterman’s final show.
“I haven’t done that in all my years on the air, but tonight, this is a worthwhile thing to do,” said O’Brien. “It’s 11:35. Record us, but switch to Dave!”
So for those who followed his instructions and missed the Kristian Matsson-led band, check it out below to see O’Brien also give some props to Matsson’s 12-string Gretsch Chet Atkins Country Gentlemen.
