The Black Keys, St. Vincent to Close Out ‘SNL’ Season
By Kevin Rutherford
It’s already nearly the end of another Saturday Night Live season, and to celebrate, the show is pulling out one of its more recent dependable musical guests.
Today (April 23) the show announced that the Black Keys will play the show on May 10, as accompaniment to host Charlize Theron, Vulture reports. It’s the Akron rock duo’s third time on the show, dating back to two appearances in 2011 behind Brothers and El Camino.
This time, the band will be appearing behind their next studio album, Turn Blue, which is slated for a May 13 release.
A week later, SNL will wrap up its 39th season as one of its former cast members, Andy Samberg, returns to host the show. He’ll be joined by a first-timer on the stage in St. Vincent. The singer born Annie Clark is still promoting her self-titled fourth album, which dropped in February.
It’s the final two shows for SNL this season before gearing up for the show’s 40th anniversary later this year.
