David Letterman is just a week away from retirement from The Late Show and brought Ryan Adams back to perform “Starting To Hurt” – the same song he performed on The Late show 13 years ago! Last night Ryan came back for his 11th and final performance on the Late Show with David Letterman, celebrating Dave’s incredible 22 year run. Watch a performance of “Starting To Hurt”, the same song which Ryan played during his second appearance on Letterman back in 2002.Check them both out below…Adams recently released a new 7-inch three-track EP called I Do Not Feel Like Being Good. He’s currently on the road performing a string of dates before he hits a handful of festivals, including Governors Ball, Glastonbury, and Sasquatch! 

Though it’s difficult to find a hard count, it’s quite possible that Ryan Adams has appeared on Late Show more than nearly any other musical guest during David Letterman’s nearly 22 year tenure. The alt-country singer made his tenth stop at the Ed Sullivan Theater just this past September, with the host noting, “We can’t have him on the show too often, he’s a delightfully talented gentleman.” Last night, Ryan Adams came back for his 11th and final ride, and what a final ride it was.

Adams and his band performed “Starting To Hurt”, the same song which he played during his second appearance on Letterman back in 2002.  The three-minute performance wasn’t enough for Letterman, however, who pleaded for a “little more.” Adams quickly obliged, leading his band into another rendition, this time with the backing of Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra
