May, 4th 2010
As PUBLIC IMAGE LTD (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’ll will appear on NBC TV’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show” on Monday, May 17 (12:35 AMET-PT/11:25 PMCT).
The John Lydon-fronted band will 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.
The previous night’s show (Tuesday, May 18) is still scheduled for Terminal 5. All ticket holders for Wednesday, May 19 will receive a notification from Ticketmaster with a choice of keeping their tickets for the Williamsburg show or transferring them to the Tuesday, May 18 show at Terminal 5. The deadline to make this decision is end of day on Friday, May 7. Any ticket buyer who doesn’t respond to the contact email from Ticketmaster will have their tickets automatically refunded. As of Tuesday, May 4, any new tickets purchased for Wednesday, May 19 will be for the Music Hall of Williamsburg show.
In addition, the upcoming PiL show on Friday, May 7 will now be taking place at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto (doors are 8:00 PM)
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.
