Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band to Appear as  Fallon’s Only Guest on “Late Night’s” Third Anniversary Show March 2

New York — February 24, 2012 – “Late Night with  Jimmy Fallon” will honor Bruce Springsteen with a weeklong musical tribute  February 27 – March 2 (12:35 a.m. on NBC) to celebrate the launch of his new  album, “Wrecking Ball,” which will be released on Columbia Records March 6.   Each night, the show’s featured musical guest will perform selected songs from his extensive catalog.

Fallon welcomes Bruce Springsteen and the E  Street Band to studio 6B on Monday, February 27 to open the week with two performances.  Then, returning on Friday, March 2, which also marks “Late Night’s” third anniversary, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will appear as the only guest for that episode.  Springsteen will chat with Fallon for an  interview segment before taking the “Late Night” stage again for multiple  performances with the band.  Springsteen’s “Late Night” appearances are his only currently scheduled American television stops prior to a massive world tour beginning March 18 in Atlanta.

One of “Late Night’s” most memorable moments included a 70s dressed Springsteen and Fallon dressed as Neil Young performing a parody of pop hit “Whip My Hair” together during the musician’s  November 16, 2010 debut on the talk show.  The video of the comedy bit garnered instant viral success.

Tuesday night, Kenny Chesney makes his first appearance on “Late Night” when he performs “I’m on Fire,” from Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A” album, a song which Chesney previously released as part of  the bonus tracks from his 2004 album “When the Sun Goes Down.”

Elvis Costello backed by Fallon’s house band the Roots is set to perform “Brilliant Disguise” from Springsteen’s album “Tunnel of Love” on Thursday, March 1.

It’s definitely an exciting time if you are a Springsteen fan.
