'Late Night' plans first Broadway Week
NEW YORK, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" is planning its first "LNJF Broadway Week," showcasing some of the biggest hits the Great White Way has to offer, NBC said.
Starting Monday, Fallon will welcome a different Broadway musical to the "Late Night" studio each night.
David Bryan from Bon Jovi is to introduce a performance Monday by the cast of "Memphis," which explores the underground dance clubs of the 1950s. The show was the winner of four 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Tuesday brings the stars of "Promises, Promises" to the Studio 6B stage, while Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day is expected to introduce the Tony Award-winning musical "American Idiot" Wednesday and Thursday's edition of the show will feature the cast of "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson."

The crowd is ready. All they need now is tickets. However, that will change come Saturday.
"The Foley and Gulf Shores are exactly how we publicized it. The concern was in Orange Beach that they felt with the number of people that would respond to this the Sportsplex would be a better place. More easily to take the capacity that we think is going to happen," said Mike Foster with the Gulf Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The Orange Beach Sportsplex, the Erie Meyer Civic Center in Gulf Shores, and the Foley City Hall are all ticket locations for the Concerts for the Coast event. Foster said the three locations will split an allotment of 4,500 tickets per concert. The two concerts that weekend are Bon Jovi on Friday night and Brad Paisley on Sunday. Each person is only allowed two tickets for one of the concerts, not both. However, there is a way around that.
"If you take your husband or wife, or best friend, and you stand next to each other one of you could get two for Bon Jovi and one of you could get two for Brad Paisley. It's possible to do that, just find a friend," Foster said.
Foster said there were some concerns with tickets to the Jimmy Buffett concert a few months back, and this time they wanted to do things a little differently.
"What happened is that we put it on Ticketmaster, so when it turned on, it turned on everywhere," Foster said.
Tickets for the Bon Jovi and Brad Paisley concerts will be available in all three locations starting at 8:00 a.m Saturday. All you need is a photo ID and maybe a little patience as you wait in line.
Kids 10-years-old and younger don't need a ticket to attend.

Came up on the player this morning on my drive to work. It's one of my favorites off the These Days album and I hope I get to see/hear it live just one time in my life. I found the video on YT and had to share. I just love that he sings the chorus in Spanish...
Apparently Jon's end of summer bash ran a little late into the night Saturday...
JON Bon Jovi knows how to rock a crowd and keep it under control at the same time. Saturday night at his East Hampton home, he invited 60 of his closest friends, including Jack Nicholson, for his annual end-of-summer bash including a live performance and fireworks. When the show kept raging after the local 11 p.m. sound curfew, police rolled up to shut down the stage -- but the diplomatic rocker invited the officers in just to squeak out one last song.
