Jimmy Fallon to Film Post-Super Bowl Tonight Show at Phoenix's Orpheum

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is coming to Phoenix.

NBC announced on Tuesday, September 30, that Fallon and company will tape a special episode of the late-night talk show at the Orpheum Theatre. The show will be telecast live on NBC after Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, February 1, 2015, and after an episode of The Blacklist.

The Super Bowl will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

While not many details about the post-Super Bowl Fallon show are available, it's safe to say there will be a slew of football jokes, some hilarious games like "box of lies" and a lip sync battle or two, and (fingers crossed) some cameos from A-listers.

Ticket information has not yet been released. Same goes for the secret to Fallon's charisma and perpetual amusement. So, we wait.
