NEW YORK (Billboard) - Bruce Springsteen will play songs from his new boxed set, “The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story,” on the November 16 episode of NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”
The appearance, which the network announced on Wednesday, will be Springsteen’s only scheduled TV performance this year.
On the show, Springsteen will also discuss the six-disc project, due out the same day. It rounds up 21 previously unreleased tracks from the “Darkness on the Edge of Town” era.
“Promise” additionally includes hours of unseen behind-the-scenes and concert footage. A documentary about the sessions, also dubbed “The Promise,” debuted last month on U.S. cable network HBO.
Fallon is a devout Springsteen fan. In August, he chose the artist’s classic song “Born to Run” for a “Glee”-style all-star sing-along as the opening number of the Primetime Emmy Awards, which he hosted.
