"JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE" SHUTS DOWN HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD ON MONDAY SEPTEMBER 23 AND TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 24 FOR AN EPIC TWO NIGHT CONCERT EVENT FEATURING MUSIC ICONS PAUL MCCARTNEY AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35pm/10:35pm CT on ABC
On Monday, September 23, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" will kick off the broadcast season by taking over Hollywood Boulevard for two consecutive nights. On Monday evening, Paul McCartney will make his first appearance on "JKL." McCartney will join Kimmel in studio for an interview, then shut down Hollywood Boulevard for what is expected to be a record-breaking crowd.
The next night, Tuesday, September 24, "JKL" and Justin Timberlake will shut down the street to share songs from his new album The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2 which hits stores September 30 and to chat with Kimmel about his role in the new movie Runner Runner - which opens in theaters October 4.
This unprecedented two-night affair is a free concert experience in the heart of Hollywood. Streets will be closed and traffic will be diverted in an effort to contain the anticipated crowds. "JKL" will close down one- quarter mile of Hollywood Boulevard from Highland Avenue to Sycamore Avenue in order to accommodate as many fans as possible.
Lexus has come aboard as a sponsor for the Justin Timberlake show and will be utilizing their strong social media platforms to engage viewers and fans. Lexus will be showcasing the all-new 2014 IS Sport Sedan at the concert and will amplify the experience and mobilize their social community through tweeting (@Lexus), instagramming (@LexusUSA), posts on Facebook.com/Lexus and videos on youtube.com/Lexus.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" will also continue their collaboration with the newly re-launched Myspace, making both concerts available to online fans worldwide via live stream as part of the Jimmy Kimmel Live Stream concert series. The global fan bases of both McCartney and Timberlake will be able to experience the full concert experience by logging onto Myspace at https://myspace.com/jimmykimmellive. Both concerts will be available immediately following their respective airings on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on the West Coast.
