The White Stripes Appearance Marks The First Time A Band Has Performed On
The Emmy And Peabody Award-Winning Series
NEW YORK, November 28, 2005 -- The White Stripes will become the first band to perform on the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" this Thursday, December 1 at 11:00 p.m. (ET/PT). In addition to the performance, the band will also sit for an interview with the show's host, Jon Stewart.
Jack and Meg White recently completed a triumphant 40 date U.S. tour in support of their acclaimed new album Get Behind Me Satan, which wrapped-up last month with three sold out hometown shows at Detroit's Masonic Temple Theatre. Get Behind Me Satan, The White Stripes' fifth album, was released in May of 2005, entering the Billboard Charts at # 3, the band's highest chart position to date.
"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" was launched in the summer of 1996. The nightly news satire takes a reality-based look at news, trends, pop culture, current events, politics, sports, entertainment and the media. In each show, Stewart and a team of correspondents, including Dan Bakkedahl, Rob Corddry, Ed Helms and Samantha Bee, comment on the day's stories employing actual news footage, taped field pieces, in-studio guests and on-the-spot coverage of important news events.
Jon Stewart and Ben Karlin are the executive producers of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" with Stewart Bailey and Kahane Corn serving as the co-executive producers. The series' head writer is David Javerbaum who is also a supervising producer. Chuck O'Neill is the director.
