Jimmy Fallon, comedian and late night talk show host, and country music rocker Jason Aldean will headine Oklahoma State University’s Orange Peel festival in Stillwater on Friday, Oct. 3, in Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Tickets are available online at, by telephone at (877) OSU-PEEL, and at the Student Union Bookstore.

Orange Peel is a concert and pep rally organized by selected student leaders each year to provide the OSU family with national and local headline entertainment. Since its inception, more than 200,000 people have attended Orange Peel. It is now the largest student produced and student run event in the country, with almost 200 students contributing to the annual program.

“Saturday Night Live” alumnus Fallon, known for his dead-on impressions of Jerry Seinfield, John Travolta, Adam Sandler and Justin Timberlake, was recently tapped by NBC as the replacement for Conan O’Brien on “Late Night,” which is also produced by Lorne Michaels.
Country star Aldean, a native of Georgia, sold more than two million copies of his first two albums, hitting the top of the charts with five hits. His third album hit the stores in April. His album “Wide Open” went gold, and his song “Big Green Tractor” is a radio and retail hit.
