Jimmy Fallon is starting his new gig off with a bang: U2 will be the talk show host's first musical guests when he takes over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno next month. Fallon's music booker, Jonathan Cohen, announced the news on Twitter Sunday evening.

According to Variety, Will Smith will also join Fallon as he makes his debut in the role on February 17th. The show will air at midnight on NBC, following the Winter Olympics broadcast.

U2 just received an Oscar nomination for their song "Ordinary Love" from the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, a few days after taking home the Best Original Song Golden Globe. The Irish rockers have spent much of the past year recording and are rumored to be releasing their first studio album in nearly five years this coming April.
