U2 to Play Week-Long Residency on “The Tonight Show”

Interscope Records

"They were our very first musical guest here on The Tonight Show and now they'll be returning for an entire week," Fallon declared.  "That's right, U2 is coming back…It all starts Monday, November 17."

The host also revealed that the show has "all sorts of fun stuff planned" involving the band.

U2's first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was February 17.  The band performed its charity single "Invisible" on the episode, chatted with Fallon and also played an acoustic version of "Ordinary Love," accompanied by The Roots.

Of course, we can expect U2 to showcase some songs from their just-released album, Songs of Innocence, during their Tonight Show residency.  

News of the band's Fallon stint comes just a few days after Metallica announced they'd play a similar residency on CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson that same week.  And last month, The Foo Fighters promoted their new HBO documentary series, Sonic Highways,with a week's worth of performances on Late Show with David Letterman.
