All U2 Announce Weeklong Residency on ‘The Tonight Show’

By Kevin Rutherford
The residencies just keep coming.
After a weeklong spot on The Late Show with David Letterman in October by the Foo Fighters and a recently announced upcoming gig by Metallica on The Late Late Show, U2 have announced they’ll come to The Tonight Show for a full week later this month.
Show host Jimmy Fallon made the announcement that Bono and co. will come to the late night show for a week starting Nov. 17, Stereogum reports. They’ll sort of contend with Metallica for attention that week, though the shows are in different time slots — allowing rock fans to get a full taste of both of rock’s elder statesmen throughout the week.

Currently, there’s no word on if the band will appear on the show in any other capacity that week. When the Foo Fighters came to Letterman, frontman Dave Grohl was also one of the special guests early in the week, taking a seat on Letterman’s couch to discuss new album Sonic Highways. The full band also appeared in sketches, including a top 10 list at week’s end.
U2 will be promoting their surprise new album Songs of Innocence, which was uploaded to Apple accounts the world over in September in an unprecedented move that saw the record distributed for free — and saw many irked at the release rollout. Songs of Innocence is now out in a physical format as well.
