Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will honor musical legend Bruce Springsteen next week and Kenny Chesney will make an appearance.

“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.

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.”
