The initial listing for the September 7 “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” only included interview guest Reese Witherspoon.
Some “Tonight Show” fans, naturally, wondered who would be taking the stage as the musical/comedy/entertainment guest.
NBC just provided the answer.
The network confirmed that U2 will play Thursday night’s “Fallon” episode. The iconic band will presumably perform one of its new songs on the broadcast.
