    Green Day is the last of four artists set to appear next month on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" as part of a week of performances dedicated to the reissue of the Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main Street," according to a Twitter post from Questlove of "Fallon" house band the Roots.

    Green Day will kick off the special week on May 10. Previously announced participating artists include Keith Urban (May 11), Sheryl Crow (May 12) and Phish (May 13). On May 14, the show will premiere a new documentary about the making of "Exile on Main Street" titled "Stones in Exile."

    As previously reported, "Exile" will be reissued on May 18 through Universal with 10 previously unreleased tracks from the original sessions, including "Following the River," "Plundered My Soul," "Pass the Wine" and "Dancing in the Light." A super deluxe edition includes the album on vinyl, a 30-minute DVD and a 50-page book with photos from the era.

    Meanwhile, Green Day will begin a summer world tour on May 29 at the Pinkpop Festival in Holland. The group has dates on tap through early September. In addition, a Broadway musical that shares a title with the band's 2004 album, "American Idiot," just officially opened last week.
