NEW YORK (AP) — NBC says The Boss is paying Jimmy Fallon a visit.

The network announced Wednesday that Bruce Springsteen will appear on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Nov. 16, both to chat with the host and to perform.

Springsteen's appearance is timed to the twin releases of his "The Promise" two-CD set and "The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story," a six-disc set, which are both due out that same day.

NBC says his guest appearance on "Late Night" will mark his only scheduled TV performance this year in support of the releases.

"Late Night" airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. Eastern time.
