Jay Leno will return to “The Tonight Show,” but not the same production as before.
Kevin Eubanks, the host’s bandleader and sidekick, is leaving “The Tonight Show,” “Extra” confirms. The story was first reported on K-EARTH 101.
It’s uncertain when exactly Eubanks intends to leave and whether or not he’l still be on board for Leno’s return on March 1.
Eubanks has been with “The Tonight Show” band since 1992 and was also the bandleader for the short-lived “Jay Leno Show.”
