In retrospect, it’s amazing that this wasn’t Nirvana Week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The show has previously hosted week-long tributes to the Rolling Stones and Bob Marley. And next week, Fallon will spend the week honoring Pink Floyd.
As Billboard reports, next week’s shows have some big musical guests in store. On Monday, the Shins will cover “Breathe.” On Tuesday, the Foo Fighters will team up with Floyd’s Roger Waters to play “In The Flesh.” On Wednesday, MGMT, like the Syd Barrett devotees you probably already suspected they were, will play their version of the early Floyd track “Lucifer Sam.” Many Stereogum readers will probably opt not to DVR Thursday’s show, when country star Dierks Bentley will play “Wish You Were Here.” And on Friday, Pearl Jam, who will probably merit their own week on the show sooner or later, will cover “Mother.” Throughout the week, various members of Pink Floyd will also show up.
