The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’s first trip outside of New York will be to Orlando, Florida for a week of shows in June.
NBC announced this morning that Fallon will take the show on the road just in time to celebrate The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley at Universal Studios.
The Tonight Show will tape four episodes from Orlando from Monday, June 16 through Thursday, June 19. An initial line up of guests was shared via press release:
– Monday, June 16: Jennifer Lopez, Keenen Ivory Wayans and a performance by Jennifer Lopez.
– Tuesday, June 17: Kevin Hart, Jimmy Buffett and a performance by Jimmy Buffett.
– Wednesday, June 18: Tracy Morgan and a performance by Fun.
– Thursday, June 19: Pitbull and a performance by Pitbull.
NBC says that additional guests will be announced in the coming weeks, and since the press release mentioned the episodes are timed with Diagon Alley, we assume Fallon will be doing some coverage of the highly-anticipated Harry Potter expansion.
Fallon’s Orlando shows are the same week that Universal is inviting media, including Hypable, to attend an event at Diagon Alley.
While an opening date for Diagon Alley hasn’t been announced, last week Universal shared details about the new thrill ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
The Tonight Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. eastern/pacific on NBC.
