Bruce Springsteen Will Takeover Jimmy Fallon Show Four Dates in November to Promote R&B Album


Bruce Springsteen will take over Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight for four dates to promote his new album, “Only the Strong Survive.”

Springsteen will appear on the show November 14, 15, 16 and 24th.

This is a huge get for Fallon, and great for Bruce, who wants to sell copies of the album on which he covers a bunch of R&B classics. The album drops this Friday.

The songs covered include Motown hits, two from Jerry Butler, as well as a terrific Dobie Gray record called “Soul Days” by Dobie Gray, featuring R&B legend Sam Moore. (Maybe we’ll see Moore on Fallon, too!)

Can’t wait to see Bruce with Jimmy! And get the album when it hits on Friday.
