Hot on the heels of Foo Fighters playing a week of live slots on the Late Show With David Letterman, and Metallica announcing a week long residency on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, U2 are the latest band to announce a residency of their own.

The Irish rockers have revealed that they will be playing a five night stand on the NBC flagship chat show The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

U2’s stint will begin on the 17th of November, the same week as that of Metallica’s TV appearances. Anyone who happens to be a fan of both bands will be pleased to hear that the shows don’t overlap in the schedules however.

U2 previously appeared on the debut episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on the 17th of February, performing their charity single “Invisible.”

Back then Bono and Edge told Fallon that they were still working on their new album, with over 30 songs in the works. Who knew that just seven months later they would devalue music forever by forcing their recent album Songs Of Innocence on unwitting iTunes users the world over.*

Nothing Has Changed
