If you haven't been living under and rock, and if you're a Ranter surely you have not, you know that Jay Leno is no longer hosting the Tonight Show per NBCs forced retirement. Jimmy Fallon is the new host of the Tonight Show which means the show has moved back to NYC from where Johnny Carson took the show to SoCal forty years ago.
Jimmy Fallon's first guests were Will Smith and the Beatles...U2. U2 first performed On Top of the Rock(Rockefeller Center) with the backdrop of a beautiful NYC in all of its glory under a beautiful twilit sunset evening. Awesome.
Jimmy then invited U2 inside the studio and asked them to perform an acoustical version of their 2014 Golden GlobeŽ Award-winning and 2014 Academy AwardŽ nominated song, Ordinary Love tribute to Nelson Mandela. The song is at the 9:00 minute mark in the below clip. U2s complete performance from the very first Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is below.
