Get ready for country’s beach bum belting out a little of “The Boss.”
Kenny Chesney makes his first appearance on “Late Nigh with Jimmy Fallon” on Tuesday night (12:35 a.m. on NBC). His performance is part a week-long celebration of Bruce Springsteen, who releases his new album, “Wrecking Ball,” on March 6th.
Chesney will perform “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.”
The Boss, along with the E Street Band, will appear on tonight’s show and perform twice. Then, returning on Friday, March 2, which also marks “Late Night’s” third anniversary, they 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.
