Jimmy Fallon Fills in for Bono on “Desire”

Jimmy Fallon is one hell of a good sport and we mean that. This week on his late night show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, U2 were supposed to take the stage as the house band for the full week.

Due to an injury that Bono obtained during the weekend in a freak bicycle accident in Central Park which required surgery, the band had to pull out of their duties leaving the late night program performer-less.

Insert Fallon and The Roots.

Instead of just leaving it at that, a week without musical guest, Fallon and The Roots decided to give an unexpected performance of them covering “Desire.”

The best part of the performance? Fallon came out on stage decked out like Bono in both clothing and eyewear.

Check out the video from the show last night below.

As of now, The Tonight Show has not announced what they will do for musical guests this week since U2 were booked until Friday and one can’t exactly go from the operating room to the stage in less than a day.

Considering Fallon started out the week like this, we’re going to assume that he (and everyone who works on the show) might have something up their sleeve.
