Bruce Springsteen is going to take over Late Night With Jimmy Fallon next week. On Monday, February 27th, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform two songs on the show – and on Friday March 2nd (the show’s 3rd anniversary) Springsteen will be the sole guest for the evening. He’ll be interviewed by Fallon, and also perform multiple songs. On Tuesday’s show Kenny Chesney will perform “I’m On Fire,” which he previously released in 2004. Elvis Costello will perform “Brilliant Disguise” with the Roots on Thursday. They have not announced the plans for Wednesday night.
This won’t be the first time that Springsteen performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. In November 2010, Springsteen dressed up like himself circa-1975 (complete with a wig and fake beard) to perform a cover of Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” alongside Jimmy Fallon in his Neil Young costume.
The two appearances on the Fallon show are Springsteen’s only planned late night appearances at this time. He kicks off the Wrecking Ball world tour on March 18th in Atlanta, though on March 9th he’s performing a private show at New York’s Apollo Theater to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Sirius.
