The Final Late Late Show Of The Year: Who’s Joining Ryan Tubridy This Week?

The show is ending the year on a high note.

This Friday marks the very last Late Late Show of the year, and we’re in for a great show.

All in aid of the Simon Community of Ireland, the show is set to be ‘very special’ as Ryan will be joined by a whole host of famous faces.

Due to the current coronavirus restrictions, Glen Hansard’s annual Christmas Eve busking event, which raises vital funds for the homelessness charity, will be unable to go ahead. Instead, Glen Hansard will be performing on this week’s show, along with some special guests.

U2’s Bono and The Edge will perform on the night, along with Imelda May, Shane MacGowen and Hozier.

Joining them will also be Steve Garrigan from Kodaline, John Sheahan, Finbar Furey, Danny O’Reilly, Roisin O, Declan O’Rourke and Lisa O’Neill.

Philip Powell will be chatting to Ryan about his friendship with Glen Hansard, and his own experience of homelessness.

Speaking about the last show of the year, Ryan Tubridy revealed “This will certainly be a night to remember with the best of Irish talent in one room coming together for some incredible performances.

“In return, our friends here are asking viewers to dig deep to donate to the Simon Community and to help our brothers and our sisters who are currently homeless to get off the streets, to be safe, to be warm, to be treated with dignity and decency and ultimately to get the type of secure housing that everyone deserves.”

The Late Late Show Busk for Simon airs on RTÉ One Friday, December 18 at 9.35pm.
