Rocker Neil Young is following in the footsteps of U2, by taking over comedian CONAN O'BRIEN's late-night US chat show.

U2 recently enjoyed a week-long residency on LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN, and Young will now appear for four nights in a row starting on 01 November (05).

Young will head to New York City to tape the shows immediately after the 19th Bridge School Benefit concerts in Mountain View, California, where is will perform as part of rock supergroup Crosby, STILLS, NASH + YOUNG.
