ABC says in a release that 'JKL' team 'will close down a quarter-mile of Hollywood Boulevard from Highland Avenue to Sycamore Avenue in order to accommodate as many fans as possible.'
Singers Justin Timberlake and Sir Paul McCartney have been booked to perform on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" next week. To accommodate the expected record-breaking crowd, Jimmy Kimmel's team has revealed their plan to shut down Hollywood Boulevard for two consecutive nights on September 23-24.
"This unprecedented two-night affair is a free concert experience in the heart of Hollywood," TV network ABC said in a release. "Streets will be closed and traffic will be diverted in an effort to contain the anticipated crowds. 'JKL' will close down a quarter-mile of Hollywood Boulevard from Highland Avenue to Sycamore Avenue in order to accommodate as many fans as possible."
On the first night, McCartney is scheduled to make his debut appearance on the late night show. The British musician will sit down with Kimmel for an interview before performing live. The former member of The Beatles will promote his forthcoming new album, "New", which will drop on October 15.
The following night, Timberlake will have an interview with Kimmel to discuss his role in movie "Runner Runner" before playing tracks off his new album, "The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2". Timberlake's new movie will hit U.S. theaters on October 4 while his new record, which follows up chart-topping "The 20/20 Experience", will be available on September 30.
Both concerts will be streamed on Jimmy Kimmel Live Stream. McCartney's concert will be available immediately after the episode is aired. Timberlake's concert will be available later on September 30.
