Legendary Rolling Stones frontman recruits Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire for next Saturday’s ‘SNL’
When Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones hosts and serves as the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” next Saturday (May 19), he won’t be alone. Entertainment Weekly reports that the legendary frontman will be joined by modern rock bands Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire on the show, taking a little steam out of the rumor that the Rolling Stones will make a surprise appearance on the sketch comedy show.
The upcoming episode is the season finale for “Saturday Night Live,” and while the finale will mark the first time Jagger has carried the whole show, it’s his third time as a musical performer. As for Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, he’s what one would call a “SNL” regular. Counting his appearances with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Grohl has rocked the “Saturday Night Live” set 11 times.
Foo Fighters are also slated to play Bamboozle on May 19. Rest assured, that doesn’t mean they’ll be short-changing their Bamboozle set. The Foos posted this note on their official Facebook page assuring fans they’ll be ready to rock at the festival: “Dear pals who are coming to see us @ Bamboozle on May 19th & are like OMG how can they do a rock show and SNL? Don’t worry – you Rockers at Bamboozle will get a FULL ON ROCK SHOW. And it’s gonna go off. Hope so see you there.” For more information on Bamboozle, visit the festival’s official website.
