Broadcasting from the Hilbert Circle Theatre each night, “Late Night’s” Indianapolis debut on 2/1 kicks off with actor/comedian Tracy Morgan, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and a performance by rock band All American Rejects.
On 2/2 actor Taylor Lautner and musician Adam Levine join Fallon for interviews, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees makes a guest appearance and musical guest Nas hits the stage to perform. On 2/3 rapper Snoop Dogg drops by to chat, former NBA all-star Shaquille O’Neal makes an appearance and soul/pop band Fitz and The Tantrums perform.
