Late Night: MGMT/Green Day/Conan

Yesterday was a big day for news about late night shows and hosts as we found out that MGMT will appear as part of the Live On Letterman series on May 11, Green Day has been tabbed to perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as part of Stones Week and Conan O’Brien will make his long-awaited return to television on 60 Minutes this Sunday.

As far as MGMT, the psychedelic rockers will perform a number of tunes at the Ed Sullivan Theater on May 11 that will be webcast at 8pm EST via CBS.com, and will air before the group’s appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman later that same night. The group also added a few dates to their seemingly massive summer tour. You can see a complete list of dates at the band’s website.

We had previously told you that Phish will rock a tune from Exile on Main Street as part of Stones Week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but now we know the rest of the lineup for the week. Punk pop act Green Day will kick things off on May 10 followed by country star Keith Urban on the 11th. Sheryl Crow takes a stab at the Stones on the 12th before Phish returns to Late Night on the 13th. Finally, the documentary Stones In Exile about the recording of the legendary LP will premiere on the show to end the week on the 14th.

Speaking of exiles, Conan O’Brien will finally return to the boob tune this Sunday for an interview and profile on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Conan, who is currently on tour, risks losing his severance package if he talks shit about NBC, so it will be quite interesting to see what he has to say.

    This is a lot of crazy news. MGMT on Letterman should be really fun. And seeing Conan, well, that’s always a good time.
