Having just wrapped up a European tour in support of their reunion album, The Afghan Whigs dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where they performed a pair of tracks off Do To the Beast: the single “The Lottery,” which was shown on-air, and then, as a web-only performance, “I Am Fire,” coupled with just a taste of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk.”

Hard to believe, but last night’s appearance by Nine Inch Nails on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” was billed as the band’s first-ever network television performance.

Last week Jane’s Addiction received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of debut studio album Nothing’s Shocking, the band played a short set for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” part of which was aired on last night’s show and posted on the program’s YouTube channel.
Depeche Mode returned to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday night for a follow-up to the band’s 2009 mini-concert, performing a short five-song set for a throng of fans, including its Delta Machine singles “Soothe My Soul” and “Heaven,” both of which were broadcast on the late-night show.
Depeche Mode will warm up for the opening of its Delta Machine world tour in Nice, France, early next month with a just-announced free concert in Los Angeles this Friday at The Troubadour, a 400-capacity club that radio station KROQ is calling “the smallest venue the band has played in L.A…. EVER!”

Seems Morrissey’s health issues aren’t behind him, after all: Six dates into his rescheduled North American tour, the former Smiths frontman this afternoon announced that tonight’s concert at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco “will not take place” due to the singer’s “ongoing medical condition.”
Naturally, late night host Jimmy Kimmel took the opportunity last night to poke a little fun at Morrissey after the ex-Smiths singer canceled his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” by saying he could not appear on the same program as the “animal serial killers” from the A&E reality series “Duck Dynasty.”
Hours after announcing the rescheduling of his trouble-plagued U.S. tour, Morrissey backed out of tomorrow’s night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” — which was to have re-launched the tour — saying he could not appear on the same program as the “animal serial killers” from the A&E reality series “Duck Dynasty.”
Morrissey today announced that his doctors have ordered additional rest, forcing the postponement of three more concerts late next week as he continues to undergo treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus.

Morrissey today announced that he will wrap up one of his busier touring years in recent memory with six concerts in Australia and New Zealand this December immediately following the close of his 35-date U.S. tour — which also will find Moz appearing on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “The Colbert Report.”
The Fixx returned to network television last night with an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that saw the band performing new single “Anyone Else” plus the classic “Red Skies” during the closing credits. The group stuck around to perform a web-only version of “One Thing Leads To Another” as well.
