You don’t often associate rock ‘n’ roll with daylight, but that’s exactly when actress Jamie Lee Curtis wishes more rockers would hit the stage.


While talking to The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet, the Oscar-nominated actress revealed her preference for going to bed early, and offered up a “taunt” and a “suggestion” to stars like Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Coldplay to do shows earlier in the day so she could enjoy them before her bedtime. 

“U2, do a matinee. Coldplay, do a matinee,” she says. “What about a 12-noon concert, Coldplay? What about it?” 

Addressing The Boss, she offers, “Bruce Springsteen, do a f***ing matinee. You’re old. Why wouldn’t you let me come see you, Bruce Springsteen, in your glory days — pun intended — and do it at noon or one o’clock? Two o’clock. Two o’clock matinee — theater in New York, two o’clock.”

She adds, “I will come and hear your five-hour concert, Bruce, at two o’clock, then I’m gonna be home and in bed by 7:30.”
