When The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon launched back in February, U2 was the first musical guest. They performed in the show's studio, and they also did a song on the top of 30 Rockefeller Center.

Now the band's returning to The Tonight Show for an entire week. From Nov. 17 to Nov. 21, U2 will be the steady musical guest. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, this residency takes place the same week Metallica heads to The Late Late Show to join Craig Ferguson for five nights.

And as PopCultureBrain jokes, U2's performances will "automatically be stored in your DVR." (Like Songs of Innocence appearing in your iTunes, unbidden? Oh, you get it? Gotcha.) In all seriousness, though: the band "will also be expected to make appearances in comedy sketches and online exclusives." Interesting.
