Then-Senator Barack Obama campaigns in Washington, D.C. in 2007.

Dave Matthews and President Barack Obama will appear on a special episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on April 24.

Obama and Dave will tape the episode earlier that day at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The event marks the first time Obama has appeared on Fallon’s show; Dave last appeared in 2009, when Dave Matthews Band played two songs and he took part in Fallon’s “Dave Matthews GPS” skit. Fallon’s house band, The Roots, who have performed with DMB in the past, will also be at the UNC taping.

Obama and Dave will meet again May 10, when Dave performs at a political fundraiser at Seattle’s Paramount Theater, according to The Seattle Times. Tickets to that event range from $100 for balcony seats to $5,000 for a post-show photo op with the president.
