Here Are The Musical Guests For ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ This Week

The team at The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has kicked things into overdrive following its relatively relaxed Thanksgiving week programming schedule. Last week, David Letterman returned triumphantly to the beloved late-night program, but the musical guests were sparse. That currently isn’t the case this week.

Here are the musical guests for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert this week (December 4 through 8). All performances are subject to change.

Jason Isbell And The 400 Unit — Monday, December 4, 2023

Tonight, to start the week off, host Stephen Colbert will sit down for a chat with The Bear actress Sarah Paulson and musician Jason Isbell. Isbell and his band, The 400 Unit, will also serve as the featured entertainer for Monday’s episode. The group is expected to perform tracks from their album Weathervanes.

According to The Late Show’s programming schedule, Wednesday is set to feature two special guests. Both Nicki Minaj and Sara Bareilles are listed as featured cameos. Although the schedule does not explicitly state that Nicki will perform, fans have their fingers crossed.
