According to Billboard, the Shins will begin the event with a cover of “Breathe” from Dark Side of the Moon. MGMT will perform “Lucifer Sam” from The Piper at the Gates of Dawn on Wednesday night.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason will also drop in for a Monday appearance with Fallon, and bassist/vocalist Roger Waters will join the Foo Fighters onstage on Tuesday for a performance of “In the Flesh” from The Wall.

Pearl Jam will make a Friday night appearance with a performance of “Mother” from The Wall.
