Timberlake and McCartney for free? Jimmy Kimmel can hook you up - Wednesday, September 18, 2013
The production crew of "Jimmy Kimmel Live"is planning to shut down part of Hollywood Boulevard for two nights next week, but before you get too up in arms about the traffic inconvenience, know that they have a really good reason to do it.
How do free concerts by Justin Timberlake and Paul McCartney sound? Kimmel's show will close down a quarter-mile stretch of Hollywood Boulevard from Highland Avenue to Sycamore Avenue outside the studio where the late night show is taped on Monday, Sept. 23, and Tuesday, Sept. 24. But the closure isn't part of some private Hollywood shindig (that'll be the Oscars early next year). Instead, the street closure is in anticipation of the crowds who plan to show up for the free concerts put on by two of the biggest names in music.
