PiL To Appear On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.


As PiL continue to make their rounds across North America garnering uniformly rave reviews on their first U.S. tour in 18 years, the group has announced they will appear on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show on Monday, May 17.

The John Lydon-fronted band will also film their entire performance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on Wednesday, May 19 for a forthcoming PiL documentary directed by Alex Mar and produced by Artists Public Domain. DJ Justin Miller of DFA Records will open the Williamsburg show.

After fronting the Sex Pistols, John Lydon formed PiL in 1978 and with their experimental sound fusing rock, dance, folk, ballet, pop, and dub, the band is regarded as producing some of the most diverse music of the 70s and 80s. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of their first U.S. tour as well as their U.S. TV debut on American Bandstand, where Lydon invited the audience onstage to dance with the band and host Dick Clark famously introduced their appearance as "a memorable moment in rock n roll, something special and interesting."

PiL recently returned to U.S. television for the first time in 18 years when they performed on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live outdoor stage. On this spring trek - which featured a stellar performance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - PiL are showcasing the unique sounds of tracks such as "Public Image," "This Is Not a Love Song," "Rise," and "Disappointed," with many further surprises in store.
