Jimmy Fallon announced last night that Phish are set to appear as part of his show’s Rolling Stones-themed week, which will coincide with the re-release of the Stones’ classic Exile on Main Street double album. Phish’s May 13 TV appearance will be their first since the quartet reformed last year. “I can’t wait to see what they will play,” Fallon declared when he made the announcement. Since they covered, Exile last Halloween, they won’t have to prep as hard as they did for their recent Genesis tribute at the rock and roll hall of fame induction ceremonies.
Green Day will kick off the special week on May 10. Previously announced participating artists include Keith Urban (May 11) and Sheryl Crow (May 12). On May 14, the show will premiere a new documentary about the making of "Exile on Main Street" titled "Stones in Exile."
As previously reported, "Exile" will be reissued on May 18 through Universal with 10 previously unreleased tracks from the original sessions, including "Following the River," "Plundered My Soul," "Pass the Wine" and "Dancing in the Light." A super deluxe edition includes the album on vinyl, a 30-minute DVD and a 50-page book with photos from the era.
