Though it wasn’t advertised in advance, Kanye West showed up on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Monday (September 9) for a surprise performance of “Bound 2” from his newest album, “Yeezus.” Kanye was joined by Charlie Wilson and The Roots for the song. However, the big news is he seems to be wearing chaps.
Jimmy Fallon broke the news on his Twitter account, writing, “Cool thing about doing a show in NYC — anyone can drop by. @KanyeWest surprised us and performed ‘Bound 2’ tonight on Late Night!” The appearance is a nice little commercial for the tour Kanye recently announced.
He’ll be hitting the road with Kendrick Lamar starting in October, taking him right into December as he covers the Unites States and Canada. It’s Kanye’s first solo tour in five years. He last hit the road with Jay Z for their joined “Watch the Throne” tour. Where will Kanye pop up next?
“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. ET on NBC.
