Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has been set to host the May 19 season finale of “Saturday Night Live.”
Jagger’s appearance will mark the rocker’s first time leading the late-night NBC comedy show and will be his third time as the musical guest. Jagger previously made a cameo in a skit in which Jimmy Fallon played his reflection.
This is the 50th anniversary of the Stones, which formed in 1962. Earlier this year, it was announced that a 352-page book “The Rolling Stones: 50,” by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, would hit stores July 12 and “Ed Sullivan Show” performances would be released. Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood said in April that the group is “throwing some ideas around” for new songs and then, preparing for their big tour in 2013.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Rihanna are set for May 5, while Will Ferrell returns to his old stomping grounds the following week with musical guest Usher.
