The Foo Fighters will be the final musical guest to appear on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

Rolling Stone reports Dave Grohl and his band, which staged a week-long residency on the CBS late-night show last fall to promote HBO docuseries “Sonic Highways,” are set to perform on Letterman’s final broadcast on Wednesday night.

CBS offered no comment to TheWrap, while a representative for the band also declined comment.

Letterman called the rock band his “favorite” while introducing them to play his favorite song “Everlong” back in 2000, when the comedian returned to “The Late Show” after a five-week absence due to quintuple bypass surgery.

“Ever since that day, we’ve been in love,” Grohl told the Orange County Register. “I don’t know how many times we’ve played that show, but every time we do and I stand in the Ed Sullivan Theater, I never take that for granted.”

Grohl and his band are in very good company, seeing as folk music icon Bob Dylan performed “The Night We Called It a Day” during Tuesday’s star-studded penultimate episode of Letterman’s “Late Show.”

The final episode of CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman” will air Wednesday night at 11:35 p.m. ET.
