Van Morrison will be Jimmy Fallon’s first musical guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, which kicks off March 2 on NBC. Actor Robert De Niro will be Fallon’s first guest. Also tabbed to appear during Jimmy’s first week are Tina Fey, Jon Bon Jovi, Santogold, Cameron Diaz, Billy Crudup, Serena Williams, Ludacris, Donald Trump, Drew Barrymore and Mario Batali.

Fallon recently attended the grand re-opening of the Beacon Theatre where he told Hidden Track that he’s a big Allman Brothers fan and called their shows the best he’d ever seen at the newly refurbished venue. When asked about his favorite Paul Simon song, Fallon went beyond the hits and selected The Late Great Johnny Ace – a tune Simon included on his underrated 1983 album Hearts and Bones.

The former SNL cast member takes the reigns of Late Night from Conan O’Brien, who is currently finishing his last week in the 12:30 timeslot. As previously reported, The White Stripes will make their first appearance since 2006 on Friday night’s final episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
