Bruce Springsteen to Rock 'Promise' Songs On 'Jimmy Fallon'
In his only scheduled TV performance this year, Bruce Springsteen will play songs from his new boxed set, "The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story," on the Nov. 16 episode of NBC's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," the network announced today (Nov. 10).
On the show, Springsteen will also discuss the six-disc project, due out the same day, which rounds up 21 previously unreleased tracks from the "Darkness on the Edge of Town" era and includes hours of unseen behind-the-scenes and concert footage. A documentary about the sessions, also dubbed "The Promise," debuted last month on HBO.
Fallon is a devout Springsteen fan, having chosen the artist's classic song "Born to Run" for a "Glee"-style all-star singalong as the opening number of the recent Primetime Emmy Awards, which he hosted.
