From November 17 to November 21, U2 will be the musical guest every night. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the band are also expected to appear in comedy sketches and online content.
U2 already have a close relationship with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Back in February, they became Fallon's first Tonight Show musical guest by performing on Rockefeller Center's rooftop.
Interestingly, November 17 to 21 is the same week that Metallica will be performing a residency on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson over on CBS. In other words, you'll be able able to spend two hours of every night glued to the tube, hoping that the bands forgo recent material in favour of their classics.
