Late Night with Jimmy Fallon To Honor Bruce Springsteen The Week of February 27 – March 2

NBC announced on Friday that rock icon Bruce Springsteen will be the recipient of a week-long tribute on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” as part of the launch of his new album, “Wrecking Ball.”

For the week of Feb. 27-March 2, the music-loving Fallon will make it all about Bruce, beginning on Monday with a pair of performances from Springsteen and the E Street Band. The New Jersey icon will return on Friday, March 2 (Fallon’s 3rd anniversary hosting “Late Night”) to perform more songs and sit down as the night’s only panel guest.

Sandwiched between these Springsteen appearances will be performances by Kenny Chesney, who is slated to perform the moody “I’m on Fire,” off the “Born in the U.S.A.” and on Thursday, Elvis Costello will perform “Brilliant Disguise,” from “Tunnel of Love.”

A special guest for Wednesday will be announced later.

Springsteen’s two appearances on “Late Night” will act as his final TV stops in America before he embarks on a world tour beginning March 18 in Atlanta. He opened the Grammys on Feb. 12 with a high-octane performance of “We Take Care of Our Own,” the first single off “Wrecking Ball,” his 17th studio album.
