Jimmy Fallon debuted his new Tonight Show on Monday night in New York, and it was a star-studded affair with high-profile guests like Will Smith, celebrity cameos from the likes of Tina Fey, Lady Gaga, Stephen Colbert, Robert De Niro and an epic Rockefeller Center rooftop performance by U2.
Earlier in the show, Fallon interviewed U2 about their Oscar-nominated song “Ordinary Love,” and encouraged the band to perform the song acoustically. Bono and team complied, with the singer also presenting Fallon with a new red Gretsch guitar in honor of the band’s charity efforts with the (RED) campaign.
The legendary rock band later closed out the episode from 70 stories above NYC with a performance of new single “Invisible.”

New Jersey quintet Titus Andronicus made the late night circuit on Thursday, dropping by Jimmy Fallon to perform The Monitor‘s album opener, “A More Perfect Union.”
Here’s what the band had to say about the appearance on their official website.
“Hello friends. It is with great wonder that we announce to you now that our humble rock and roll band will be performing this Thursday night on reputable network television program Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Yes, for three and a half glorious minutes, Titus Andronicus will invade the living rooms of America, sweep out all the cobwebs of our bankrupt society and replace them with the seeds of a glimmering punk utopia. Right?”
Magnetic frontman Patrick Stickles used his Gretsch guitar, adorned by the American flag, for the appearance, video of which is unfortunately no longer available from NBC. However, here’s the official music video for “A More Perfect Union.”
