:shock:

Wow, this is major. Fallon is the biggest late-night show on-air now. And the show's social media presence is huge. Quite a step up from Jimmy Kimmel.

It's too bad Craig Ferguson is off the air and Colbert isn't set to host Late Show until September - would've loved to see Blur on their shows.

Man, Blur on Jimmy Fallon - I never thought I'd see the day.

:D so glad for you guys, this seems pretty exciting! And actually Fallon seems a pretty nice bloke, I've never actually watched his program, but I've seen tid bits and he seems clever and level headed, so sweet that blur gets to be on his show

EXCELLENT! Honestly this makes me so happy. I had thought Damon might have been anti-Fallon since his performance last year...and Damon had his "you do not amuse me at all" face on. :P

This is great! Maybe the album will enter the US charts higher than #80! :D

Great news!!!! Can't wait to watch it, this will definitely influence the first week sales in America. Marvelous! I'm guessing they'll do Lonesome Street and then a bonus, online only song. Yay for America at least getting a TV performance so far :P

I don't think Lonesome Street would go down as well as Spaceman or Pyongyang. Or even Mirrorball. Or Ghost Ship! But either way I can't wait!

Ghost Ship would be PERFECT for them to do!! Hopefully it'll be Ghost Ship or Pyongyang. Pyongyang would be killer!

You know, I had just posted something the other day hoping for something like this to happen and, what do you know? Maybe they're a bit more open to America than Damon had previously let on.

True. Someone on reddit (I think, can't remember where) said Ghost Ship kind of sounds like a brother to Slow Country (or something along those lines.) Interesting comparison IMO.

Yeah it took me a second to think it through, but once I did I agreed. I crave a listen to both of these songs in a row! It would probably put my mind on a beach somewhere smoking a joint :P

will be playing lonesome street surely!

imagine theyll be either doing some itunes session or some radio shows (live or pre-recording) world cafe/morning becomes eclectic
surprissed theyre not going on Late Late Show with James Corden... makes sense to do that one, but thats all the way in LA, so seems unlikely until they do a full tour...
