Jay Leno's 1st stop after leaving late night: South Florida
Has two dates
Jay Leno's 22-year Tonight Show run draws to a close Thursday. But that doesn't mean the late night legend is going to sit idle at home watching Jimmy Fallon take over his gig on Feb. 17.
“It’s been a wonderful job, but this is the right time to leave,” Leno said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I’m at that age where I don’t really listen to the [current] music anymore. A 63-year-old guy reading Miley Cyrus’ tweets is a little creepy. Move on.”
Instead, the day after Leno steps off the Tonight stage, he will travel to Florida for a handful of club dates. Tickets are still available for his performance at the Kravis Center’s Dreyfoos Concert Hall in West Palm Beach at 8 p.m. Saturday (www.kravis.org). Leno will then travel to a few more dates up north and circle back down to Miami for a show at the Knight Concert Hall at The Adrienne Arsht Center March 30 (www.arshtcenter.org). So you can say goodbye to him in the flesh. Or maybe don't say goodbye at all.
