Mick Jagger to perform with Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire on 'Saturday Night Live'
When Mick Jagger hosts the season finale of "Saturday Night Live" on May 19, he'll be joined by two Grammy Award-winning bands, according to a recent report.
The Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire will join the 68-year-old Rolling Stones front man for performances on the Studio 8H stage, Entertainment Weekly reports. The magazine notes that Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl has performed on the live sketch show 11 times.
It will be Jagger's first time as host, though he has appeared on the series as a musical performer at least twice. In the past, the rock legend has shown off his comedy skills by participating in some skits on the show, most memorably in a December 2001 skit with Jimmy Fallon, which can be seen below.
Arcade Fire Tweeted about their upcoming appearance on the show on May 11 writing, "We're extremely excited to be joining Mick Jagger on SNL next Sat, May 19!"
Meanwhile the Foo Fighters Twitter account asked their followers, "What're you guys doing next Saturday Night?#SNL."
Jagger was announced as the season finale host on May 3. Last September, Jagger released an album as part of his super group SuperHeavy, which features Dave Stewart, 59, of the Eurythmics, soul singer Joss Stone, 25, reggae artist and youngest son of the late Bob Marley, Damian Marley, 33, and "Slumdog Millionaire" film composer A.R. Rahman, 46.
The first single off of the album was "Miracle Worker," which the band shot a corresponding video for in late June. Other tracks include "One Day One Night," "You're Never Gonna Change" and "SuperHeavy." Billboard described the sound as varying from straight reggae to "Indian and Jamaican rhythms" with touches of "street-smart swagger" and "cinematic string" elements.
Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary this year and plan to release a documentary in September, as well as a commemorative book later in the year.
