DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (July 15, 2005) — Tonight Show host Jay Leno will perform at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Industry Awards Banquet, Nov. 3 at the Las Vegas Hilton Center.
Mr. Leno, an avid car collector, has exhibited his own cars at the SEMA Show in the past, SEMA said. His performance will cap off the awards banquet, for which exhibiting companies will receive reservation forms in early July. Tickets for general attendees will be available after Aug. 15 on a first-come, first-served basis.
The banquet honors inductees to the SEMA Hall of Fame, New Products award winners and the SEMA Person of the Year. About 3,000 people are expected to attend.
“SEMA has had the pleasure of displaying some of Jay Leno's extensive car collection in the past, now we are fortunate enough to have his extensive talent at the awards banquet,” said Mitch Williams, SEMA's incoming chairman of the board.
