The band perform their new single as they stride through the city...

Beastie Boys performed their current single ‘CH-CHECK IT OUT’ live on the streets of NEW YORK yesterday (June 16)..

The veteran rappers stopped rush hour traffic with the stunt, walking through the city, and straight onto the stage of ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’.

The performance started in a tube station, with the trio identically dressed in grey trousers, blue shirts, sneakers and silver baseball hats, reports Xfm. They then rapped down the street, before finishing the song on the David Letterman show stage.

The live recording of the rendition was competed with just one camera shot.

The show was part of the promotion that the band have been doing for their forthcoming album ‘To The Five Boroughs’, which was released this week.
