UPDATE: SNL confirms Arcade Fire and Foo Fighters with Jeff Beck to perform with Mick Jagger

After a few days of rumors, Saturday Night Live has confirmed the musical guests that will be joining Mick Jagger on the show’s season finale this week.

In addition to his hosting duties, Jagger will perform with Arcade Fire and the Foo Fighters with Jeff Beck.

Rumors surfaced a few days ago that the Rolling Stones have been rehearsing secretly in New York, prompting speculation that the band will make a surprise appearance on the program with their frontman.

SNL pre-promoted the upcoming season finale during this past Saturday’s show, listing Jagger and the three musical guests that will appear alongside the Stones singer.

This will be the rock icon and multiple Grammy-award winner's first time as host and third appearance as musical guest.
