U2's loss is Kid Rock's gain.

The "Son of Detroit" will perform on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" Friday night, filling in for U2, who dropped out of a week-long residency on the show after lead singer Bono was reportedly injured in a bicycle accident in New York City last weekend.

Rock is swooping in and will debut a song from his new album "First Kiss," according to a tweet from the singer's account on Friday.

"First Kiss" is due out Feb. 24.
