Judas Priest to rock Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon’s late night show has been home to some serious rocking in the past year, with visits and performances by the who’s who of rock.

This week, Fallon is marking the reissue of 14 studio albums by Pink Floyd with a week dedicated to the band, including performances by Roger Waters with the Foo Fighters, MGMT, Dierks Bentley, The Shins and Pearl Jam.

Now you can add Judas Priest to the Fallon hit list, as the band has been confirmed to perform on the Friday, October 7 episode.

Two days earlier, Priest fans can interact with the band on Rockline with Bob Coburn, set for Wednesday, October 5 at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. More details, etc. at

The appearances come just days before Priest launch the North American leg of their “farewell” Epitaph tour in San Antonio, Texas on October 12.
