Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton and More to Help Bid Farewell to Jay Leno
Jay Leno is finishing up his tenure on ‘The Tonight Show,’ and Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton are going to help bid farewell to the television host as he passes his baton to his successor, Jimmy Fallon.
The ‘Boys ‘Round Here’ hitmaker will appear on ‘The Tonight Show’ with guest Sandra Bullock on Wednesday, Feb. 5, while Brooks has the special honor of being on Leno’s final show on Thursday, Feb. 6. Billy Crystal (who was Leno’s first-ever guest) will also take part in the grand finale.
The star-studded lineup of guests also includes Fallon and Betty White on Feb. 3. Matthew McConaughey, 23-time guest Charles Barkley and Lyle Lovett — who is impressively tied for most appearances by a musician on the show — will appear on Feb. 4, according to TV Guide.
Along with appearing on Leno’s show, Shelton has exciting things up his sleeve with the announcement of his 2014 Ten Times Crazier Tour. Meanwhile, Brooks — who is prepping for a big return to country music — recently announced a special comeback event in Dublin, Ireland.
With these stars helping in the last few days of Leno’s hosting, you can be certain he’ll go out with a bang!
