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.

“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” is produced by Universal Television and Broadway Video. Lorne Michaels is the executive producer. Michael Shoemaker produces. Gavin Purcell is the supervising producer.

Billboard.com – “Best of 2010”: Whip My Hair

Billboard.com hat vor wenigen Tagen die “Year End Charts” für das Jahr 2010 veröffentlicht. Bruce Springsteen wird in der Kategorie “Top Viral Videos of 2010” erwähnt. Das besagte Video zeigt Bruce Springsteen mit Showmaster Jimmy Fallon, als sie am 16. November 2010 in den NBC-Studios Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” zum Besten gaben (wir berichteten hier).

Bruce Springsteen: Whips His Hair
The ever-earnest Bruce Springsteen did the unthinkable during a November appearance on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” — he covered Willow Smith. With the grizzled New Jersey rocker donning his ’70s scruff-muffin look and Fallon taking on the persona of Neil Young, the pair joined forces for a brooding rendition of the 10-year-old pop up-and-comer’s “Whip My Hair.” Bruce fans were left simultaneously laughing and scratching their heads, and late-night TV history was made.

Bruce and The Roots Rock Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
If you missed (and didn’t DVR) Tuesday night’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” you missed one of Bruce Springsteen’s finest-ever appearances on television. Springsteen was relaxed and funny, particularly when joined onstage with his sidekick and best pal, Steve Van Zandt, who was nattily attired in a zip up vest and tie. – Quelle
