Welcome to “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon!

 

… And a slew of other A-Listers including Robert De Niro, Mariah Carey, Tina Fey, Kim Kardashian, Seth Rogan, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga and… drum roll please… U2!

 

Funny man Jimmy Fallon made his debut as the host of “The Tonight Show” Monday evening but it was the rooftop performance by rock legends U2 that stole the show.

 

Though the 39-year-old made history hosting the show from NYC for the first time in 40 years, the real excitement came when the host hit the rooftop to announce the band.

 

Fallon yelled, “We’re here at the world famous Top of the Rock at the top of Rockefeller Center, 70 stories above the city! I couldn’t think of a better way to show off our beautiful city and I can’t think of a better band to be up here with… Ladies and gentlemen, U2!”

 

The music legends executed a historical performance of their new song, “Invisible” making it the second time they have performed on a rooftop, the first going all the way back to 1987 with “Where The Streets Have No Name.”

 

Screaming ensues!

 

U2 didn’t stop there however. Fans were also treated to an acoustic rendition of “Ordinary Love” in studio when the band miraculously found 2 guitars behind “The Tonight Show” couch!
