LADY GAGA RETURNS TO “JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE” FOR AN EXCLUSIVE LATE-NIGHT
BLOCK PARTY ON THE BUD LIGHT OUTDOOR STAGE, THURSDAY, JULY 28, ON ABC
Lady Gaga returns to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for the first time since she made her late-night network television debut on Kimmel’s show back in October 2008. The Grammy-winning superstar will chat with Jimmy, followed by a live performance on the Bud Light Outdoor Stage in Hollywood.
For the first time ever “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will shut down the entire city block behind the studio in order to accommodate Gaga and her legion of little monsters. This epic block party will include the pop icon’s late-night debut of her newest hit single, “You and I.” Gaga joins the ranks of musical royalty Coldplay, Jay Z and Depeche Mode, who have also shut down the streets of Hollywood for their performances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Thursday night’s show also features a visit from Academy Award nominee Harrison Ford, whose film “Cowboys & Aliens” will be released nationwide on Friday. Ford’s interview will round out a week of bookings dedicated to the film leading up to its premiere, including appearances by Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Adam Beach and an episode of Kimmel’s show directed by Jon Favreau.
